Don't expect this slow-cooker chutney to be like the American version, which is jam-like and almost a preserve. This recipe is true to the original Indian style of chutney, which is more of a thick sauce. With spices and tomato, it's both slightly hot and sweet. It's best eaten warm or at room temperature on crackers or grilled meats, and it will keep in the refrigerator for about 5 days.
