  1. Preheat a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Put the oil, garlic, ginger, and jalapeño in the pan and sauté for about 1 minute
  3. Add the mango, sugar, and water.
  4. Turn heat up to medium, cover, and cook for 3 minutes, until it's boiling
  5. Add the red wine vinegar and asafetida, and cook for another minute, uncovered
  6. Chill until ready to use. We put in the freezer and stir it often for about 130 minutes; it's usually good and cold by then

Recipe Tips:

Veganomicon likes the sourness of the asafetida (which we reduced to 1/4 tsp), but you can use any Indian-y sort of spice instead - such as curry powder or garam masala

If you're not a fan of hot & spicy food, omit the jalapeño, or use half a pepper or less to your taste.
