Traditional Indian chutney is a spicy, sweet and tart condiment, whose intensity is perfect for balancing milder flavors. In the American South, chutney recipes have swapped in locally popular spices (including paprika, oregano and thyme)—and turned the sweetness up a notch. Here, we’re serving Cajun-spiced shrimp and cheesy grits (a classic Southern pairing) with a chutney of tart green tomato, or tomato harvested early. Made with onion, raisins and brown sugar, this chutney tops off the dish with delicious complexity.
