Yield: About 1 cup


  • 1 cup diced mixed fruits (such as apples, pears, peaches)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chopped fresh coriander leaves for garnish


Prepare the Fruits:

  • Wash, peel, and dice the mixed fruits into small pieces. You can use a combination of apples, pears, and peaches for a variety of flavors and textures.
Mix the Seasonings:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the honey, lemon juice, grated fresh ginger, ground cumin, ground coriander, red chili powder, and a pinch of salt.
  • Stir the mixture well to create a balanced blend of sweet, tangy, and spicy flavors.
Combine Fruits and Seasonings:
  • Add the diced mixed fruits to the bowl with the seasoning mixture.
  • Gently toss the fruits to coat them evenly with the flavors. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10-15 minutes to marinate.
Adjust Seasonings:
  • Taste the chutney and adjust the seasoning levels according to your preference. Add more honey for sweetness, lemon juice for tanginess, or chili powder for heat.
Garnish and Serve:
  • Transfer the honey-spiced fruit chutney to a serving bowl or jar.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro (coriander leaves) for a burst of freshness.
  • Serve the honey-spiced chutney alongside Indian meals as a flavorful condiment, or use it as a dip for snacks like samosas or pakoras.


  • Nutty Crunch: Add a handful of chopped nuts (such as peanuts, almonds or cashews) to the chutney for extra texture and richness.
  • Fruity Additions: Experiment with different fruits like mangoes, pineapples, or even berries for unique variations.


  • Store the chutney in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for several days.
  • This chutney can be enjoyed as an accompaniment to savory dishes or even as a spread for sandwiches and wraps.
