Yet another recipe given to me by Chionnessa Kaur (Chionessa, where are you?). This chutney, though an acquired taste is simply brilliant and will get you through a heavy cold, relieve a consistent chesty coughs, and boost your immune system.
5” fresh ginger, finely chopped
Whole bulb of garlic, finely chopped
2 onions, finely chopped,
2 tsp turmeric
Fresh red or green chilies, thinly sliced (add to your own taste)
Tamari for seasoning
Saute the first 5 ingredients in a small amount of vegetable oil for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool and add tamari to taste. When completely cool store in an airtight container in the fridge and eat on a regular basis – try for a couple of teaspoons a day. It can be eaten with mail meals such as hot pot, shepherds pie, roast veg, or with sandwiches or baked potatoes, or if you’re feeling hard core just eat it off a teaspoon.
