Spicy curry carrot chutney

Carrots, onion, red pepper and chilli combined with spices make a delicious chutney to serve with cold meats or cheese.


Preparation method

  1. Put the carrots, onion, pepper, chilli and ginger in a pan. Add the sugar and vinegar, stir and heat for five minutes. Add the spices and a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. Bring to the boil and simmer for about one hour 15 minutes.

  3. Add the fresh coriander to the pan and stir it in.

  4. Drag a wooden spoon through the pan. If no liquid fills the channel, then the chutney is ready to spoon into sterilised jars. If the chutney is a little wet, cook for another few minutes and test again.
