Cherry tomato chutney

This is an excellent accompaniment for chicken or fish! Spicy sweet, and pretty to look at. Grape tomatoes are fine to use instead of cherry tomatoes if you'd prefer.

Cherry Tomato Chutney
Olive oil
Shallot, chopped
2 c cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 t cardamom
1/4 t turmeric
1/4 t coriander
Red pepper flakes to taste
1 T lime juice
Salt and pepper

Heat oil and cook the shallot until soft. Add the tomatoes ad the spices and simmer for a few minutes until tomatoes soften. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve cool or room temperature.
