croolk's picture
These are a delight. Many fruits and vegetables can be used for this purpose, blended or chopped with a selection of fresh herbs and chillies.
Ingredients
  Apples 4 (preferably Bramely)
  Dried tamarind 1⁄2 Tablespoon (1/2 packet)
  Green pepper 1 Medium
  Lemon 1⁄2 , juiced
  Green chillies 4 Small
  Fresh mint 1 Bunch (100 gm) (large bunch)
  Coriander 1⁄2 Bunch (50 gm)
  Caster sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

Soak the tamarind in a little water to soften and pass through a sieve to extract the juice. Set the tamarind juice to one side. Roughly chop the apples keeping the skin on, and squeeze the lemon juice over them. This stops the apples turning brown.

Coarsely chop the chillies, coriander, green pepper and mint. Put all the ingredients in a blender and whizz to a fine consistency.

This chutney freezes very successfully, and can be used with a wide range of dishes from curries to roast meats. You can vary the amounts of sugar, tamarind water and chillies to give a sweeter, hotter or more sour result.
