Recipes: Island Styles!

I'm keen to give these a go, as soon as I can afford the ingredients, and it warms up a little more to make me some chutneys!

http://allrecipes.com.au/recipe/8301/mango-and-kiwifruit-chutney.aspx
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
6 cardamom pods
700g mangoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
700g kiwifruit, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
100g sultanas
200g soft brown sugar
300ml cider vinegar

In the meantime here's a little something that should be easy enough to find and cook:

For more, why not fly to Fiji?
It's a beautiful country, a heap of wonderful islands, amazing people... and a culture you won't be forgetting in a long time!
Don't forget the lei wrapped around your neck upon arrival means you'll return. (I got one when I flew there a few years ago, and I can't wait to return!)
