Chutneys are a must-have in your pantry. Their versatility means you can turn any everyday dish into something exciting and different without the hassle of using lots of different ingredients.

Here are 11 great ways to use your chutneys:

1. AUSTRALIAN STAPLE WITH A TWIST

If you’re a fan of Vegemite sandwiches, try adding a slice of strong cheddar and a spoon of chutney for a new twist on this Australian national dish. Add sliced red onion for extra depth.
