Put the pork chops in a container and pour over the cold marinade. Cover and leave in the fridge for 6 hours.
Preheat a barbecue or grill to the highest setting.
To make the blatjang, mix together the whole dried apricots, raisins, both types of mustard seeds, sugar and vinegar in a saucepan. Cook over a low heat for 15 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in the ground almonds, chopped apricots, chilli and coriander.
Grill the marinated pork chops for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
Meanwhile, to make the radishes, mix the mooli with the black radish and breakfast radishes, drizzle over the oil and season.
