Titli's Tips
The quantities given here should make two 1lb (450 g) jars of chutney.

To make a spicy version of this chutney use 12 cloves, 12 peppercorns, 2 tsp of cumin seeds and crumble in 4 dried red chillies.

This chutney can be eaten with just about anything you like. Eat it with a curry to give a sweet contrast, or eat it with cheese on toast!
