I had never made chutney before this one, but it is so simple, no boiling, it's almost a no cook version. It will keep for up to a week in the fridge, but I doubt it will last that long!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill and line the grill pan with foil.
  2. MIx the onions and oil and spread them out in the pan.
  3. Grill for 12-15 minutes or until soft and charred.
  4. Put the plum slices into a large bowl and add the hot onions with all the reamining ingredients.
  5. Leave to marinate for 1 hour, then taste and add salt and pepper, plus a little extra sugar if you like.
  6. Goes great with cold meats or stuffed into a pitta bread with a strong cheese.

Although I followed the recipe pretty much, I did cut back the amount of red chile by about 2/3! I also used the more moist, chewy Medjool dates & came up with A GREAT TASTING CHUTNEY, & one I'll make again! Thanks for adding to my growing number of chutney recipes!
