To make tomato and ginger relish

Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan. Fry the onion, ginger, chilli and garlic until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the tomatoes. Add the chilli sauce and simmer over moderate heat until the liquid has evaporated and the flavours have intensified, about 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature and add the lemon juice. Season to taste.
