    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…

  • 4 tbsp fresh coriander
  • 5 tbsp lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 8 ready-to-eat poppadums


  1. Put the mango chutney in a bowl and chop up any large pieces of mango. Mix with the spring onions, coriander and lime juice. Cover and chill until ready to serve. (You can make this up to a day ahead and keep it in a covered container in the fridge.) Serve the chilled dip in a bowl on a plate, with the poppadums broken in pieces and placed around the sides.

Love this! Have made it several times and I could easily polish off the lot single handedly.

Made this as a starter for an Indian inspired lunch for friends. It went down a treat but I found the lime taste got stronger the longer it sat. Made it the night before and had to add almost double the amount of chutney specified. Everyone asked for the recipe. Will definitely make again.

My husband really liked this but I was less convinced, I thought the flavor was a bit overpowering. Maybe I’ll try less spring onion and more mango chutney next time to make it a bit sweeter.

Made this last night and served with a cucumber raita (also from this website) and poppadums. One guest said 'you can tell which is the favourite' as it was finished in about 2 minutes and I had to make more!

Made this to accompany a starter and it was fantastic. This simple recipe turned the basic mango chutney into a wonderful "homemade" dip which was excellent with poppadums. Very positive comments and very simple to make. Will be making this again.
