This week’s recipe is “Radha Red” Plum Chutney taken from “Great Vegetarian Dishes” by Kurma dasa
Preparation Time: about 1 hour
Yield: about 3 cups (750ml)
4 tablespoons (80ml) butter
11/2 teaspoons (7ml) ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon (1ml) powdered cardamom seeds
3 tablespoons (60ml) finely shredded fresh coconut
1.4 kg ripe red plums, pitted and cut into eighths
2 cups (500ml) sugar
A pinch of raw camphor crystals
  1. Heat the butter over low heat in a heavy 5 litre/quart saucepan until it froths. Add the coriander, cardamom, and coconut, sauté for one minute, and add the plums. Raise the heat and bring the chutney to a boil; then reduce the heat and simmer covered for about 15 minutes or until the plums lose their shape.
  2. Add the sugar and continue to simmer uncovered for another 40-45 minutes or until the chutney is fairly thick and glazed, stirring occasionally. Add the camphor crystals and mix well. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate covered for up to 4 days.
