I'm always looking out for recipes with apricots, in my case, dried apricots, as the fresh ones are not easily available and even if they are, are really very expensive. I can never get enough of this delicious tangy dried fruit!
This is another lovely recipe from Mridula Baljekar, Apricot Chutney.
It is really easy and delicious with a mixture of sweet and sour. Great with rice and as a side condiment with Indian curry and freshly made bread.
Make some and have a jar of this delicious chutney, serve alongside your favourite meats, I'm sure that you will enjoy this. I did!
I'm sharing this with these lovely sites :
(source from : Curry by Mridula Baljekar)
450gm dried apricots, finely diced (I use 300gm)
1 tsp garam masala
275gm light brown sugar (I use about 200gm)
450ml malt vinegar (I use 250ml)
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp salt (I use about 1-1/4 tsp, to taste)
75gm (1/2 cup) sultana
450ml water (I use 250ml)
- Put all ingredients together into a saucepan and stir well to mix. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- When the chutney becomes syrupy, remove from the heat. Leave to cool, then ladle into a hot sterilized jar and cover. Chill after opening.
