This easy and attractive chutney was made up to go along with curried quinoa and wild rice savory cakes. Bold and assertive, with a layering of intriguing sweet, tart and peppery flavors from the mango, coconut, fresh orange and lime juices, dried apricots, chilies and cilantro, this a refreshing accompaniment to Indian savories. Also consider serving alongside basmati rice and a soup or dal curry for a most satisfying meal.
I've made this chutney before, but last time I used ripe red mango rather than the unripe green mango used here. I enjoyed both versions, but this one is less sweet and somewhat more tart. Delicious either way. It's essentially uncooked, as the only "cooking" is the quick frying of brown mustard seeds.
