Sugar plum and chilli sauce with Indian flavours

Thanks to @bellyrumbles for your Easy Chilli Plum Sauce Recipe – goo.gl/G2qhsv which I used over the weekend with some adaptions to create a delicious sugar plum chilli sauce. Now I have a heap of it to enjoy in coming weeks!

My version follows…

Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

1kg of sugar plums chopped with seeds kept for mixture

150 g caster sugar

100g brown sugar

500ml white wine vinegar

10-12 small red chillies

1/2 finger size piece of ginger cut into pieces

10 g salt

2 star anise

I tablespoon coriander seeds

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

Handful of fresh curry leaves (2 large sprigs with leaves removed from stems)

Method:

Chop sugar plums into pieces keeping the bits with the stone.

Put rest of ingredients in large heavy based non-stick pot and slowly bring to a simmer.

simmer for 45-50 minutes until fruit has gone past pulpy to form a sauce

Allow to cool for 10 minutes or so

Strain in portions through a fine sieve to seperate sauce from seeds, leaves and spices, pushing sauces and juices through with the back of a wooden spoon.

Pour into sterilised glass container and allow to cool thoroughly before fitting with airtight lid

Will last in fridge for 4-6 weeks but will be eaten before then!!
