This moreish and bold chutni uses Indian limes that have thin skins, which - once they have been preserved in syrup and spices - mellow and soften and are just outright delicious.

This chutni adds a zingy, sweet, tanginess to your meal - whether served as is on the side or used as a drizzle or glaze. It is delicious as an accompaniment but also makes complex dipping sauces, sweet and sour dressings, a tangy relish or an amazing mayo topping.
