Benefits: Mango is high in fiber and is a great source of vitamins A and C. Also contains folate, B6, iron calcium, zinc, and vitamin E.  Mangoes are a good source of antioxidants, containing certain phytochemicals such as gallotannins and mangiferin which have been studied for their health benefits.

I had never made homemade mango chutney before attending @sevensistersspices alchemy of spice workshop. Now I can’t stop making it. It’s one of those delights that tastes so much better than the store-bought versions. It sets off an Indian meal and goes with sushi, cheeses, or in salads or sandwiches too.
