Red Pumpkin Peel Chutney

This chutney has a slight nutty-spicy flavour and tastes great as an accompaniment with meals or a plain parantha. The easiest way to separate the skin from the flesh is to grate the pumpkin skin with the flesh on, while making sure you don't get any fleshy bits.

Serves 2 (as an accompaniment!)
