    Meanwhile, for the Mango Tomato Chutney, toast the Cumin Seeds in a large pan over a medium heat for 1 minute, or until fragrant.  Add the tomatoes, mango, onion, Coriander, honey, Cinnamon and Salt.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly until the tomatoes soften and the sauce is slightly thickened.
