Previously a secret only revealed to people attending the vegan cooking workshop here, this is a tangy chutney that helps out in an apple glut and can be frozen. It complements dhal really nicely. Oooh, that’s nice is a typical response. And here’s how you make it.
Here featured in autumn with golden dhal, roast parsnips and salad of radicchio with pomegranate molasses dressing.
