chunky tomato relish

What you need

1 tbs olive oil
1 small brown onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small fresh red chilli, halved, deseeded, finely chopped
500g ripe vine-ripened tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs white wine vinegar

What to do
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until aromatic.
Add the tomato to the onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the tomato breaks down.
Add the sugar and vinegar, and cook for 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens. 
Set aside to cool, place in a sterilized jar and keep refrigerated.
