This Indian style chutney is an aromatic, spicy blend that is a great accompaniment to any curry, topping for nann bread and even eats well on crackers and breads. It bursts with flavour and smells delightful.





Recipe (6-8 cups)


1 cup vegetable oil

¼ cup of mustard seeds

¼ cup of cumin seeds

2T of minced ginger

3 cloves of garlic (chopped finely)

2.5 kg of tomatoes

450g of sugar

2T of turmeric

1T paprika

6-8 red chillis (deseeded and chopped finely)

300ml of malt vinegar

2T ground coriander

3T salt


Heat your oil in a large pot on medium heat. Once the oil is hot enough add in your mustard and cumin seeds, cook until the seeds start to make a popping sound. Add all your other ingredients and turn your heat down and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for around 1 1/2 hours, or until the chutney had reduced and oil starts to appear on the surface. Spoon or pour the mixture into hot sterilised jars and shut the lids tightly. Leave to cool.
