Serves: Makes 200ml


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, allspice and cayenne, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the onion is soft. Add the brown sugar and malt vinegar and stir until combined.

Add the tomato sauce, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and 1 cup of water, then season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

Allow to cool slightly, then puree in a blender. Cool completely, then scatter with spring onions to serve.
