Glaze

tsp of Smoked Chilli
Few sprigs of Fresh Lemon Thyme
Roast Tomato & Pepper Dip
3

6
Ripe Tomatoes
4
Shallots, Cut FIne
1/2
cup Unrefined Caster Sugar
1/4
cup White Wine Vinegar
pinch of Salt & Pepper
Directions
1.
First up the chutney dip, which can be made well in advance.
2.
Pre-Heat your oven to 180 Degrees.
3.
Place the peppers on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until they are slightly charred. Meanwhile, prepare the tomatoes. Lightly score a cross on the bottom of each tomato, then plunge them into boiling water for 1 minute, then straight into ice cold water. Peel the skin off the tomatoes & discard.When the peppers are cooked and still hot, put them in a plastic sandwich bag and leave to cool. Once cool, take the peppers out of the bag, then deseed. Once deseeded using the back of your knife peel/scrape off the skin and discard.Chop the tomato & pepper flesh into even size pieces then add to a heavy bottom saucepan with the remaining chutney ingredients. Place over a very low heat with the lid on for around 1 hour or until it's thickened nicely. Store in a clean sealed container.Mix the luke warm water with the yeast & olive oil. Leave for around 10 mins until slightly bubbly.Meanwhile, Place the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle then add the water & yeast mix. Stir until the mix starts combining. Use your hands at this point, on a lightly floured work surface. Now its time to knead.You want to knead for around 10 minutes. The dough should be smooth and quite elastic after the 10 mins.Put the dough back into the mixing bowl this time make sure you have lightly oiled the bottom and sides of the bowl.Place a clean damp towel over the top of the bowl and leave somewhere warm for around 1 hour or until its double in size.After an hour, remove the dough from the bowl. It should feel beautiful and light. I love this part. Knock the dough back and knead for around 5 minutes.Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper, in the middle place a lightly greased ramekin, this will eventually be the place for your chutney pot.Cut the dough into approximately 25 even sized pieces, I used my weighing scales and made sure each piece was 35g. Roll each piece into a ball, the best way of doing this is by placing one hand on top of the dough ball on the surface, applying pressure & moving your hand in a circular motion.Neatly place the balls in the ramekin. Once complete, place the damp tea towel over the top and leave the dough somewhere warm to double in size. This should take an hour.Mean while mix together the glaze ingredients & prepare the toppings.After an hour, using a pastry brush, brush the glaze over each dough ball and sprinkle over the toppings.Bake for around 40 minutes in a 180-degree oven. Once baked and slightly cooled remove the ramekin from the middle and place in your pot of chutney."
