What to do w/mango/ginger chutney..

I picked some of this up at Trader Joes thinking I can put it in something but just exactly what? I know I can put it on crackers and it eat it just like that but I wonder if there is some sort of curry dish I can put it in or something that vaguely resembles indian..?

Is it a mango chutney or ginger chutney? Or it is a chutney of a aam-ada (a ginger like root having aroma of unripe mango. It is called aam ada in Bengali & manga inji in South India)?

The scientific name of aam ada is Curcuma mangga.

It appears to be a chutney having both pieces of mango and smaller bits of ginger. The ingredients list: mango first and ginger 7th, in between is sugar, red bell pepper, raisins, water, and red wine vinegar. On the label it says "Made with classic mango ginger and aromatic spices.."

You can make a chicken casserole with it. I would not put it in a curry but you could have it as a side dish. I also love spicy chutneys in sandwiches with meat.

I love that chutney and use it in the following recipe, among others.

Chicken Curry (Serves 8)

4 whole bone-in chicken breasts (about 3.25 lbs) split
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 can (13.75 oz) chicken broth

CURRY SAUCE

3 TB. Butter or margarine
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 cup chopped onion
2-3 teaspoons curry powder (your choice medium to hot)
1 cup chopped pared apple
1/4 cup unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom (don't leave this out!)
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper2 tsp. grated lime peel
2 TB. lime juice
1/4 c. Major Gray mango chutney, chopped

Skin the chicken and wipe dry. Brown chicken, a few pieces at a time, in 1/4 cup hot butter,
about 5 minutes each side.

Return all chicken to the skillet, add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat
and simmer, covered for 20 minutes, or until tender.

Remove chicken pieces and keep warm. Measure the liquid in the skillet, add water to
make 3 cups and set aside.

Make the sauce. Put the 3 TB. butter in the skillet and heat. Add garlic, onion, curry powder and apple
and saute until onion is tender.

Remove from heat and stir in flour, cardamom, ginger, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Gradually stir in reserved liquid, lime peel and lime juice.

Bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat and simmer covered for about 20 minutes,
stirring once in a while.

Add back the cooked chicken and chutney and heat just to boiling.

Serve with basmati or saffron rice and curry accompaniments.

Curry Accompaniments to set on the
table for sprinkling on the chicken dish. They add
a lot of different and interesting flavors to the curry.

Chopped bananas, dipped in lemon juice
Mango Ginger Chutney
Whole salted peanuts
Flaked Coconut
Yogurt
Sliced Green onions
chopped cucumber
Raisins
Chopped tomatoes
Pineapple chunks

It's also one of those things you can put over a block of cream cheese, or mix it with the cheese, to spread on crackers. I like it with chicken, fish, even a 'burger. Good on a turkey sandwich, too. I make my own peach-ginger chutney.
