  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 - 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger


  • In a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, add the vegetable oil. 
  • Add the onions and saute for 3 - 4 minutes or until the onions are soft and translucent.
  • Add the curry powder, cumin and ginger and saute for another 1 - 2 minutes. 
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until the mixture is reduced by approximately ⅔rds. 
  • Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and proccess for 10 - 15 seconds or until the mixture is blended but still a bit chunky. 
  • Transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. 


If you prefer a less spicy chutney, reduce the chili garlic sauce by ½. After cooking the chutney, taste it, adding more if you like. 
I used jaggery in this recipe but brown sugar works as well.
