    Made a very inaccurate version of this and it was delicious. Had three wizened apples and two spongy tomates on my counter accusing me. I cooked chopped apples in small amount of water, added chopped peeled toms, a small handful of finely chopped red onion-- NO mustard seeds no curry--. Added 1/4 cup sugar, few shakes cayenne,salt and nutmeg, handful of sunmaids and a splosh of white vinegar. Simmered 5 minutes and served with curry (so avoided curry powder in chutney) Really good! Will definately 'fake' this recipe in future. Gotta love one you can be this careless with and still get a good result  -  09 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Peel the tomatoes first else you end up with stringy bits of skin. I added some dried peaches, anise and cloves for extra flavour. This is an excellent recipe! Highly recommended.  -  24 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Super chutney. I just chucked in the mustard seeds and left them in -also i put alittle less curry powder as i thought first batch was a little too curry for me - personal choice really though Oh and only used half the amount of vinegar.  -  24 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
