Natalee Hallgren of Tecoma, near East London, says this dish is a hit when her family have friends over for a braai. 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °c. Line a baking sheet with foil or baking paper.

2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the garlic for 1 minute.

3. Add the tomato and onion mix and green pepper and simmer until thick and fragrant.

4. Season with salt and pepper and add the chutney.
