I made chutney!! I'm so pleased it looks ace! It tastes really lovely even though the recipe said it needs 8 weeks to mature before eating.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

Another vote for chutney.

Sorry multitask only just saw your post, and I've had a quick look and can't find a link right now, will look again tomorrow. I think it might be in Return of the Naked Chef.

Actually, I don't think anyone who thinks 4 mangoes is too many should be allowed any mangoes........

Just saw this... a rice pudding recipe with mango by Bill Granger: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/coconutricepuddingwi_70431 Whenever I have loads of mango I whip up smoothies with it - favourite at the moment (but a bit green and citrussy!) is mango, lime and coriander.

Oh and I have even made a mango crumble before, with ginger and almonds in the crumble mix and stem ginger in with the mango.

I could get through 4 in an evening, happily!

My mango salsa is really nice, with tortilla chips or qaesadillas or on the side of a chilli -
finely chop a red onion, a red pepper, a red chilli. Cube the mango. Mix together. Add lime juice, salt and pepper and lots of fresh coriander (you could shove some mint in too).

Mango lassi is gorgeous - blend mango, natural yoghurt, milk and a bit of icing sugar to taste and serve with lots of ice.

Jamie Oliver has a recipe for a mango and mint salad, I think with couscous. it's lush.

Do you have a link for this? Sounds lovely and I have fresh mint and a lovely ripe mango in the fridge smile

Chop into cubes then freeze. Good for smoothies/lassi/milkshake. Or purée, freeze then drizzle over ice cream or plain cheesecake smile

Why can't you go through 4 in the next few days? I could!

I've got a fab recipe for mango chutney if you want it. Warning- you'll never eat bought again!

Should say mango & prawn red curry. Not sure what red prawns are....!

Nigella does a mango & red prawn curry.
Mango salsa (nice with avocado thrown in too) - lovely with fish.
Personally I'd have no problem getting through 4 in a couple of days - mango with yogurt for breakfast, cubed for a snack, in salsa for evening meal. Thrown in a smoothie.....

Ha ha badger thanks for that link. Perhaps she had one stuck up her ahem.. Bum...

Mango chutney

My wonderful dad stocks the DD's fruit supply on a weekend. He brought 2 huge mangoes (to go with the 2 huge mangoes that he brought last weekend...) However my kids have decided to stop eating them and I probably can't get through four in the next few days...

What can I make?
