Chunky Onion and Tomato Relish

I have early memories of my mom making delicious, chunky onion and tomato relish. This we would spoon on top of thick butcher-made patties and place within a freshly-baked bread roll. Filled to the brim, the result was a truly finger-licking process. Yummy!

Yields: 4


10 ml salted Butter

1 small Onion, when sliced +- 85g

2 medium Tomatoes, when chopped 270g

3 crushed Garlic Cloves

15 ml All Gold Tomato Paste

10 ml Mrs Balls Chutney

10 ml HP Sauce

 5 ml Worcestershire Sauce


1) Heat a pan; add butter and then sauté onions well

2) Add chopped tomatoes, garlic and cook well

3) Finish with tomato paste, chutney, hp and Worcestershire sauce and allow reducing until desired consistency is reached

I look forward to hearing from you.
