This is a real favourite - eat for dinner and then eat the leftovers cold or warm!
The flavours, which are really varied, come together beautifully as the dish is cooked.
I haven't met anyone who hasn't really enjoyed this - it is a very old recipe originally given to me by my grandmother which I have slightly tweaked over time. If you have a favourite mango or any fruit chutney, it would likely go well with this dish.
This dish requires some good old fashioned tasting from you towards the end of the cooking and adjustments to taste, as you do! It’s all about your own taste buds, so could be lemon, coconut, tomato puree, cumin or whatever - don’t let me put you off as the end result is worth it!
