Special Ramadhan Chutney

Servings :

For some inexplicable reason I mostly make this chutney in Ramadhan! Not that it's a difficult chutney to make…far from it! It just has a special 'Ramadhan' feel to it for our family I guess. Well on occasion upon request from friends/family, I do make it (albeit rarely!) during the rest of the year too… but come Ramadhan, everyone requests a jar of my special chutney.


  • 1 mango, green-peeled ones that are just starting to ripen but are still completely firm
  • 2 big carrots, grated
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste
  • 10 dates, de-seeded
  • 10-20 red whole chillies (adjust according to heat that you like)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water (add sparingly whilst blending)
  • 1/4 tsp orange food colouring (optional)


Put everything in the blender, add the water a little at a time and blend until it becomes a smooth paste. Taste and adjust sweetness by adding dates/sugar/ketchup and heat by adding extra chilies. Add water if you want it lighter in consistency.

Once it is to your satisfaction, pour into a glass jar and refrigerate. You can also freeze this for up to a month. Use with your meals as needed and enjoy!! Goes really well with kababs, bhajias, samosas…etc
