Equipment

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Dice all the ingredients. To get an even chop, I often use either this push chopper, or this pull chopper.
  • Place all ingredients in a 1.5 quart slow cooker. I tested this recipe in this slow cooker. Since they all vary so much with respect to temperatures, you may need to check yours from time to time.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours.
  • Remove the lid and allow the chutney to cook for another 30 minutes, to allow some water to evaporate and thicken

Notes

  • I know many of you will want to know if this can be made in the instant pot. I would advise against it because the sugar in this could cause the chutney to stick to the bottom and give you a burn message.
  • You can, of course, use the slow cook function of your instant pot. In that case, remember that LOW = Keep warm, Medium= cook on low heat, and HIGH = cook on high heat.
  • The majority of the spice in this recipe is from the dried ginger powder. This flavor and heat also intensify with cooking.
  • If you are spice-sensitive, you could consider two alternatives.
    • Reduce the dried ginger
    • Use a few slices of fresh ginger which will be less spicy but will still lend a great taste to the chutney.
  • This chutney has been in my fridge for 2 weeks now and is still fantastic, so it keeps a while. If you plan to not conduct science experiments with it like I am doing, you might consider canning this with a water bath. I am not able to advise you on that because I haven't canned in a while.
  • Taste and adjust as needed since fruit can vary in its level of tartness and sweetness.
  • This chutney is meant to serve as a side condiment. Each diner would get about 1 tablespoon alongside other dishes such as Instant Pot Chana Masala, Palak Paneer ,and either Basmati Rice Pilau or naan.
  • You really want to cook this in a slow cooker or on the stove top. You could make this in an Instant Pot, but then you'd spend a lot of time putting it on sauté to evaporate all the water.
  • A serving is about 2 teaspoons since this is a relish.
