Tomato Chutney

Ingredients:
5 kg ripe tomatoes, peeled, deseeded

Late summer harvest

The talk around the neighbourhoods and villages is that this summer has been slow to come. Not enough sunshine to ripen the figs. Too much rain splits the tomatoes. The season is late. Night-time temperatures remain stubbornly low. Despite the season’s vagaries there is still a wonderful abundance of fruits and vegetables available. The Triangle team celebrates this bounty with tried and true recipes.

Marinated chicken with coconut chutney

Jody Vassa

A few things about these drummies. Firstly, to ensure they cook evenly on the BBQ, make sure you score the thickest part of the leg. A couple deep diagonal cuts will do. Dilute the yoghurt a little as it helps the marinade stay on the chook. Lastly, make extra chutney as it is divine and tastes  great on everything, and it is suitable for all doshas, which is a bonus!
