‘Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm.’
It’s good to be a support. Giving strength and depth so another can flourish. Two can flourish where one might fail.
Simple, sweet, tangy and refreshing, this chutney can be whipped up in a few minutes to bring colour and fancy clothes to support an Indian main dish. Serve it next to a dal or a kitchiri. Spoon some onto your samosa or add it to a wrap. It’s super easy. Here’s how to do it.
1.5 x teaspoons cumin seed
1 raw beetroot – finely diced
3 x baby carrot or equivalent – finely diced
1 x firm red tomato – finely diced
juice of 1 x lime
pinch of salt
7 x pitted dates
1/3 cup water
- Toast the cumin seeds on a dry flat pan until it cracks. Set to the side.
- Blend the dates and water together to make a light-brown, sweet paste.
- Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving to allow all flavours to mingle.
- Serve and enjoy.
