This easy to make and flavourful South African preserve is wonderful with curries, stews and casseroles - and I have also used it in toasted cheese sandwiches as well! Atjar was introduced to South Africa by the Malays about a century ago. It consists of a variety of vegetables and fruits, boiled and preserved in a very strong chili pickle. It should be pleasantly sour with a sweetish aftertaste. It is usually eat it as a relish with curry or meat dishes in South Africa.
