Mauritian Tamarind & Apple Chutney
Tamarind is a tropical tree that produces pods with juicy sweet-sour tasting fruit. Tamarind contains beneficial polyphenols that have an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. They also contain good levels of magnesium, potassium and B vitamins. This delicious chutney is a great alternative to tomato sauce for burgers and barbecue meats. It’s delicious served with fish, chicken and curries and as a dipping sauce. Try mixing some through your next stir-fry for extra flavour.
