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.
