“Plum Chutney” a sweet, spicy, tangy and pungent chutney made with the freshest and sweetest plums from Japan.

If you are a regular followere here or on my social media you would know how much I love chutneys, dips and spread and all homemade. I reckon chutneys made of stone fruits like plums, peaches, mangoes have a really good taste, consistancy and they are really verstile.

You can use this chutney for your cheese board, in your sandwiches, with parathas and with simple steamed rice. If you are an Indian and grew up eating Khichadi (a rice porridge), you would eat something sweet, spicy and tangy as a side and this Plum Chutney is a perfect side.

I usually make Plum Chutney with a few spices and chillies but this time I wanted to make it with some Indian flavours so I used pickling flavours like fennel seeds and nigella seeds which gave this chutney a fantastic deep flavour.

Since I have got my Thermomix I have been developing a lot of recipes and one of the recipes I wanted to make using it was this Plum Chutney, trust me it is so easy, fuss free and quick.

So this is how you make this delicious, sweet-spicy, tangy Plum Chutney.
