Best chutney recipes

Quick beetroot chutney

This vibrant chutney is great on burgers, or with grilled salmon or mackerel to cut through the richness of the dish. It takes just 15 minutes to prepare, so it’s perfect for throwing together in a hurry.

Chilli garlic chutney

This simple but tasty garlic chutney can be whipped up in just five minutes. Serve with a spread of Indian dishes for a feast of fabulous flavours.

Spiced courgette chutney

This light chutney is really easy to make, and has a chunky consistency and vibrant flavour that makes it a great accompaniment to many dishes. It also makes a lovely gift.


Rhubarb and apple chutney

This deliciously tart and slightly sweet chutney goes brilliantly with cheese, oily fish and roast pork. Make the most of a rhubarb glut and preserve the taste of spring.

Manchego and fresh fig chutney

A fantastic, quick chutney that can be ready in under 30 minutes. It’s made from fresh figs, red onion, ginger and spices. Try serving it with manchego cheese and rocket on toasted crostini. It would also be great with any charcuterie.


Tamarind chutney

The best thing to serve this tamarind chutney with is Maunika Gowardhan’s ragda pattice (ginger and chilli potato patties).

Christmas plum chutney

A classic spiced plum chutney to serve with cheese or cold cuts. The flavour gets mellower and deeper the longer it’s left, so give it at least a week before diving in. It also makes a great foodie gift for friends and family.
