Fermentation Time 2 days
Course Side Dish
Cuisine Indian
Servings 500 ml


  • 3 diced mangoes
  • 65 g roasted coconut flakes (½ cup)
  • 1 tsp. shredded ginger
  • 60 ml sauerkraut juice* (optional: adding sauerkraut juice will speed up the fermentation process and get you one step closer to the day you can enjoy it. You can also opt for improvised lacto-fermentation by letting the chutney sit on the table for a few days. It all depends on your preferences and your sense of adventure.)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ cup water (125ml)
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 lemongrass sticks
  • 1 dried hot pepper, or 2 tbsp. chili flakes


  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients by hand except the lemongrass sticks.
  • Fill the jar with the mixture and add the lemongrass sticks. Press down the chutney well so that it is covered as much as possible.
  • Close the jar and let it ferment naturally at room temperature for 2 days if using sauerkraut juice, otherwise up to 5 days. If you have a craving for chutney, forget the rules and dig in from day 2.


This delicious bright chutney can be stored in the fridge for months.
Eat with kefir cheese on warm naan bread, as a side dish for dosas, samosas, or with any bland meal. Enjoy!
