Thanks Kitchen butterfly, I know what you mean... Its extremely versatile! This is the absolute basic version I posted since a lot of my street food recipes called for it. I even dip corn chips in it! Love the mango slaw idea!

I love this chutney. Since an Indian friend taught me how to make it a few years ago, it has become a staple. I stir some in to yogurt to make a thick sauce, I coat mango juliennes in it to make a delicious sweet and sour slaw - will be posting my version soon. Love it tossed in sweetcorn. Shall I stop :-)
