    3 tbsp. cane sugar
    3 tbsp. Cider Vinegar
    1 handful of  raisins

    Cut the top and bottom of rhubarb – remember to take care of the foot, which is the bottom white piece of the stem and the point where the taste of rhubarb is most concentrated and lovely. Rinse the rhubarb, and cut into approx. 1 cm long pieces. Cook over low heat along with chopped onion, the whole of chili, curry, coriander, sugar, applecider vinegar and raisins. Let  the chutney cook until the rhubarb is cooked into a ferm compote ,about.15-20 minutes.
    Take the chili out of the chutney. Otherwise it will get to spicy and then serve the warm chutney with the fried garfish.
