Tomato and Chilli Chutney

Tomato and Chilli Chutney

A remake on another recipe, this has a slight kick, for the type of person that would not buy items that contains stack loads of chilli's. Good with ham and cheese and biscuits for a carpet picnic in front of your favourite TV show.


  • 500 g red onions finely sliced
  • 1 kg fresh tomatoes chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves finely sliced
  • 8 - 12 fresh red chilli's roughly chopped
  • a thumb-size piece of ginger peeled and chopped
  • 250 g brown sugar
  • 150 ml red wine vinegar
  • 10 cardamom seeds
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 3 medium sized red peppers
  • 3 medium sized green peppers


  1. Place all of your ingredients into a large, heavy-based pan and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally.
  2. Simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Using a handheld blender, blend all of the ingredients, but not so much that it becomes a puree.
  4. After simmering, bring to a gentle boil so that the mixture turns dark, jammy and shiny.
  5. Place into sterilized jars .
