Mango Chutney

Mango chutney is an absolute classic. Usually as a side for rice which I've already said in the other mango chutney recipe. Actually you know what? I should have given a different name for this version. Something like mango thokku. Any way pretty much the same or certain different ingredients. Still, mango and spices are the core ingredients.  See which recipe you prefer, either the previous or this one with the addition of curry leaves and spices for the aroma and 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.
