Homemade Paleo Spicy Mango Chutney
Well, I am pretty sure chutney is already paleo-approved, but if not, here is a recipe for some! Cody and I have a debate, he says it’s spicy, I say it’s not. Technically it’s his recipe, so since he says it’s spicy, I’m obliged to agree with him. Regardless, this is a great side for pretty much any chicken dish. I used it for my Crunchy Crispy Coconut Chicken (tenders), and even the pickiest of eaters, loved it. Hi Celeste! 🙂
If I ever find a keto version of this, I promise I’ll make it happen. It will still be carby, but maybe I can some how, some way find a way to make it work. If I do, you will be the first to know, promise!
Also, to the left is a fermented mango & bell pepper hot sauce, I haven’t posted a recipe for yet but if anyone is interested, I will whip up the ingredients. Just let me know!
- 1 onion
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1/3 c apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 c water
- 2 inch piece of ginger, grated or minced superfine
- 2 mangoes, chopped
- 1/4 c honey
- 5 Thai bird chili, minced
- You can also just use 2 red jalapeno
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- salt to taste
To begin, dice onions and saute oven medium-low heat for two-three minutes or until they are translucent. Try not to brown them, but if accidentally do so that’s fine. Add the garlic and grated ginger and continue to saute for another two-three minutes. Next add vinegar, water, and mangoes. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the mangoes are soft and the liquid has reduced by about half. Take the chilies and mince them until they are super fine, and add them to the liquid. Remove from heat and set aside to let cool in refrigerator or at room temperature. I would personally let cool in fridge for a minimum of one-two hours to give the flavors time to meld together. Once cooled, blend your chutney until its somewhat smooth. I like to use an immersion blender because I can better control the consistency since I like it a little chunky. Taste and adjust the sweetness as needed with honey.
That’s it! Seriously though, do yourself a favor and try this with my keto/paleo approved coconut chicken tenders. The flavors compliment each-other so well!
