Easy Peasy Lemon Chutney


Lemons Sliced
Lemon Juice (optional)
Black mustard seeds
Chili flakes
Oil for frying

Thinly slice Lemons, set aside.
Heat oil in frying pan and fry mustard seeds till they start to jump.
Add turmeric, and chili flakes (if using). 
Add lemon slices.

Add water to cover and cook till the lemon skins are soft (has if making jam)

This is the second time I added water as the skins were still too tough.

The sauce will reduce and thicken  (for the second time here.)
Do not add salt this could toughen the skin.

Once cooked down to the consistency you like.  Take off heat.
Add salt and if need sweetening add honey and /or lemon juice.  Adjust.  Great on Indian food,  adds a'kick to sandwiches and salads
