Prepare the onion, garlic, ginger, pears, kiwi and squash.
The day before, ideally, start to make the chutney. You will also need sterilised jam jars ideally. Heat the oil and fry the panch pooran, coriander and cloves for 2 minutes. Then add the onion and garlic and fry again for 2 minutes. Next add the chilli flakes, ginger, honey, lemon juice and salt and stir. Add the fruit afterwards and bring the mixture to a boil.
Once the honey has dissolved, reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. The mixture needs to become thick enough to store. Set the jam aside for 5 minutes.
Move the jam into the jars with a spoon and seal the jars as quickly as possible. Store to cool in a suitable place. Ideally, it should be left overnight.
For the squash, preheat an oven to gas mark 6 for 15 minutes. Drizzle the squash with olive oil and roast for 35 minutes.
Serve with the chutney and, if possible to source, a vegetarian hard cheese alternative to parmesan. Add freshly ground black pepper.
The chutney should make a large amount - approximately four jars
