I’ll let you in, into what I love the most about this sauce. It is a contradiction of sorts.

Sweet, yet savoury.. from the honey-like tanginess of pineapple overlaid with the savoury pungency of garlic.

Cool, yet spicy.. from the heat from birds’ eye chilli which has been tempered somewhat by the cool sweetness of the mangoes.

The result – a blend of flavours so complex, you will be elevated to the status of a serious contestant on Masterchef in the minds of your dinner guests. I know this, because I have received reviews of the like every time I have made this dip.

There’s just one small tip.

Ease up on any precision when chopping the mangoes. You want to have some large-ish pieces, along with smaller chunks. That way, when the dip is ready, you can treat yourself to some bite-sized mango chunks within the sauce.

You can serve this sauce as a dip for crackers, cooked meats, vegetables or any starter you happen to be serving up. There are no rules here. Let your imagination be your guide.
