Curry Pork Chops with Easy Plum Chutney

Grilled, broiled or pan fried the plum chutney brings plenty of flavour to these fragrantly spiced juicy pork chops.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 4 boneless center loin pork chops

For the pork chop marinade

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp yellow curry powder
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil

For the Plum Chutney

  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups diced ripe plums
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated ginger root
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes optional or red curry paste/powder to taste


  1. Mix together the marinade ingredients and rub it all over the pork chops and place in a Ziploc bag in the fridge for an hour or two or overnight.
  2. Grill the pork chops until fully cooked. (You can also pan fry or broil them if you prefer.) I use a meat thermometer to cook them to an internal temperature of 145 to 150 degrees F.
  3. Let the chops rest for 5 minutes before serving with the plum chutney.

To make the Quick Plum Chutney

  1. Begin by sautéing together the red onion, garlic and olive oil in a small pot for a few minutes until softened.
  2. Add all the remaining chutney ingredients and Simmer together gently for about a 20-30 minutes until the mixture thickens and resembles a thick chunky jam.
  3. Serve over or along side the grilled pork chops.
