This spicy-sweet chunky Indian chutney recipe is full of bold flavors. Fresh kumquats bring a sour-sweet citrus flavor, dried dates provide natural sweetness, and spicy heat comes from red chili flake and ginger. Enjoy this healthy, oil-free, plant-based condiment with Baked Samosa Cakes or Mung Bean and Rice Curried Khichdi.
- 1 cup kumquats, halved and seeded
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chili flake
- 7 pitted dates, chopped
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
How it’s Done
Combine everything in a small pot. Cover, bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
Cook until the kumquats break down and everything is thick and chunky. Remove from heat and let cool.
Store for up to 10 days in the refrigerator or freeze for longer.
Yield: 1 cups
Chef Katie’s Tips:
Kumquats? Kumquats are a member of the citrus family. They look like thumb-sized tiny oranges. Unlike oranges, you can eat the entire fruit – skin and all! Just spit out the one seed.
Other Fruits: When kumquats aren’t in season, you use dried apricots, diced pineapple, or dried mango. Fresh groundcherries, gooseberries, and starfruit also make for interesting exotic chutneys.
