Make your own Beetroot Chutney and use it with cold meals, in burgers, or even with your Sunday roast

My mum used to make lots of chutneys with Red Tomato, Green tomato, Rhubarb but never Beetroot the only beetroot we ever had been pickled. That all changed when I came to live in sunny Thailand.
Living in Thailand there is such an eclectic mix of nationalities that I have picked up recipes from all over the world. Making beetroot chutney came about when we had our restaurant/bar and an Aussie customer asked if I had Beetroot or Beetroot chutney to put in his burger. Β Well as a Brit I had never heard of beetroot in a burger but anything to please a customer and we had quite a few Aussies who came in to eat so a few days later yes we did have Beetroot chutney and what a hit? Indeed it was and not just with the Aussies.
