This is a good accompaniment to barbecued meat, tagines, or a chicken that you’ve cut up and grilled. Most of these ingredients will be resident in your kitchen. Take them out, dust them off and lash them in.

  • 1 or 2 onions (chopped)
  • Handful of dried apricots (chopped)
  • Handful of sultanas (chopped)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ red chilli (finely chopped)
  • ½ green chilli (finely chopped)
  • Generous sprinkling of rosemary (dried is fine) and coriander (chopped)
