30g crushed garlic  
25g crushed ginger  
40ml sesame oil  
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1 1/2 tsp fenugreek  
2 whole star anise 
2 cloves  
1/2 tsp chilli paste  
1/4 cup tamarind pulp  
1 tsp sea alt  
1/2 tsp cumin 
1/2 tsp coriander  
1/2 tsp turmeric  
1/2 tsp pepper  
500g mango cubes  
250g palm sugar  
125ml white vinegar  
125ml water 

Method
