This recipe for Mango Chutney scones is incredibly easy to whip up at the last minute if you have people dropping by for afternoon tea. It’s also a perfect offering to take along to a pot-luck dinner or as an appetizer for an Indian meal.
I was sent a package from Patak’s with a selection of their pastes and pickles to try and because I am a real fan of Mango Chutney I adapted my favourite soda water scone recipe and gave it a savoury twist.
Don’t be fooled by it’s rustic appearance and simple list of ingredient, the mango chutney in these scones packs a real flavour punch that will win everyone over. I like to serve it with a cooling cucumber and mint raita yoghurt dip. I’ve just mixed together my own here, but if you’ve never made raita before try this recipe (halve it though because it makes a lot).
This recipe makes a very soft and sticky dough which needs the lightest touch to work with, but creates the fluffiest scones. It doesn’t look as pretty as a regular scone dough, but tastes so much better!
If you don’t have mango chutney you can substitute it with your favourite pesto, pickle, or fruit jam.
- 3 cups SR flour
- 1 cup thickened cream
- 1 cup soda water
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup spiced mango chutney
- milk to glaze
- mint leaves to garnish
Tastes great served warm with cool Cucumber and mint yoghurt Raita dip.
FYI – This post was not sponsored but I did receive some products from Patak’s to try with no obligation to create a post. I just really like mango chutney and thought you would enjoy this recipe.
