All Christmas leftovers need a good chutney, and here we’ve got a simple tomato and date version with a lovely fragrance from cinnamon, cardamon and ginger, as well as texture from nigella and mustard seeds. The sweet, spicy, tangy flavour works well with cold cuts and cheese, or even use it to liven up the Boxing Day curry.
BOXING DAY CHUTNEY BLEND (1 portion = 2 tbsp): Kashmiri chilli, cinnamon, green cardamon, cumin, nigella, red bell pepper, brown MUSTARD, allspice, ginger, coriander, fenugreek
May contain CELERY and SESAME. Allergens are listed in CAPITALS
