You may not know it, but chutney is one of those ingredients which can be used in a number of dishes. It can also be used in meals that you haven’t even thought chutney could work in! Here are our ten ways on how you can use chutney in your dishes.



Chutneys are ideal to be used alongside curry dishes. Fruit and onion based chutneys add amazing flavours to Indian dishes, especially to the side of a fiery Mandra Curry!


Cheese and Biscuits

There’s nothing nicer than indulging in some cheese and biscuits with a spoonful of chutney to dip them into. Our spicy chutneys will offer your customers an entirely new cheese and biscuit experience; however, if spice isn’t their thing, then a side of apple chutney will surely go down a treat.



Want to jazz up your sandwich offering? Well, adding some chutney to your sandwiches will add some excitement to your menu! Chutney works best in beef or ham sandwiches, however, they also work perfectly well in a salad sandwich. Cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, and horseradish with a spread of chutney will definitely make your customers coming back for more.


Sunday Dinners

There’s nothing nicer than dining out on a Sunday with your family and friends. Chutneys work really well with a number of Sunday Roasts, including lamb, pork, and game. You can sweeten up your Pork or Chicken dishes with a side of Apple Chutney, give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.


Dip Dishes

Serving chutney as part of a dip dish is guaranteed to be a firm favourite with groups of customers. You could also add some pitta bread and tortilla chips to the sharing dish which is sure to go down a treat. Spicy chutneys will add a kick to the dish, pairing it with a pint of ginger beer (something else we stock too) will offer your customers a great experience!


Roasted Veggies

If you have never tried it then we’d recommend coating your veg, especially carrots and parsnips in some oil and chutney. The chutney will add oozes of taste to the vegetables and will quickly become a firm favourite.


Cheese Toasties

Many cafes will understand that late morning cheese toasties are a popular choice with customers. Pop a layer of tomato chutney on the toast before putting the cheese on top and then grill away.


Chicken Dishes

Add a few spoons of Chutney (any kind) over the chicken and then cook it. This will add hints of flavour to your dish. Adding a side of salad to your chicken dish will make it a healthy dinner choice for your customers.


Cold Meats

Why not create a platter of cold meats and serve with a wide range of chutneys to cater for all tastes. Honey and Tomato Chutney go down well in platters, especially with beef and ham!



Spread some chutney across the fish before baking and you’ll add some amazing flavours to the dish. You can use whatever chutney you like, but spicy chutney will definitely offer your customers a memorable dining experience.
