'MANGO' CHUTNEY
( You can omit raisins and nuts)

1 lb (455g) green tomatoes
½ tsp ground cloves
4 bay leaves
2 oz (60g) dried dates
2 oz (60g) raisins
1 tsp red pepper (chilli powder)
1 oz (30g) shelled pistachio nuts
Just under ¼ pint vinegar (90-120ml)
1 tbs fresh lime juice
¼ tsp crushed peppercorns
5 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg or mace
2 oz (60g) toasted almonds
1 lb (455g) sugar
1 tsp black cumin seed (kala zeera)
1 tsp ground ginger
¼ teaspoonful crushed brown cardamom seed

Wash and grate the tomatoes, or pass the tomatoes through a food mill to extract the pulp without the seeds and skin. Put the pulp in a stainless steel pan; add the bay leaves and salt. Simmer slowly until soft, stirring now and then to prevent sticking*. While the tomato pulp is cooking, wipe the dry dates and simmer in 5 oz vinegar til soft. Remove the dates from the vinegar, cool and shred. Make syrup with sugar and the remaining vinegar; add cooked green tomatoes, shredded dried dates, red pepper, black cumin seed, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cardamom seed. Cook til it becomes a thick puree. Add the sliced, toasted almonds, raisins, pistachios, and lime juice. Simmer gently until thick. Remove from heat, cool, and pour into sterilised jars.
