Plum chutney

Soak the plums in enough water to cover for 2 hours.


Blend the plums and soaking water into a paste in a blender or food processor. Set aside.


Heat a small saucepan on low heat, add the ginger paste and cook for 1 minute to dry out the paste. Add the pureed plums, brown sugar, cayenne, garam masala, lemon juice and salt. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Serve with lamb, duck or chicken appetizers.
