Marcus Samuelsson's curry-laced chutney reflects India's influence on East African cooking. Honey makes the chutney slightly sweet, and sesame seeds, sprinkled over the top just before serving, add crunch.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 red Thai chiles, minced
- 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
- 6 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 English cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded and finely diced
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped basil
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the garlic, chiles and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, over moderate heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and curry powder and simmer until the tomato liquid starts to thicken, about 10 minutes. Add the honey and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cucumber and simmer until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and season the chutney with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly. Stir in the basil, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
