Mango Chutney

Mango chutney is an absolute classic dish which of course goes well as a side for rice. More to that has already been said in the other  mango chutney recipe. By right I should have named this chutney as "mango thokku". Then again, whatever the name is, mango and spices are for sure the core ingredient for the tangy, spicy and aromatic taste.

2 medium size mangoes - sliced into medium size pieces with the skin on.  The seeds can be added too.
I large red onion - chopped
1/2 inch ginger - chopped
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 cinnamon stick - broken
2 tsp plain chili powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp thick tamarind juice
2-3 sprigs curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, sauté onion, ginger, cumin seeds and cinnamon.
Add mango and the rest of the ingredients except curry leaves.
Pour in 1/4 cup of water.
Cook to soften mango, depending on how soft and mushy you prefer.
If you like a mushy type, add more water.
Lastly add curry leaves, stir and remove from heat.
