Spicy Tangy Plum Sauce

The family went to the local Farmers's Market on Sunday. The weather being good, the girls really had fun walking and looking around at the fresh vegetables and fruits. I decided to buy some juicy orange plums.
The plums were over ripened and hence I decided to make some spicy plum sauce out of this.

Here is the Recipe for Spicy and Tangy Plum Sauce
1 kilo whole orange plums
Paanch Phoran (Bengali spice mix)
Oil for seasoning
2 tsp crushed red pepper
2-3 round red chillies
1/2 tsp salt
Sugar as needed

Wash the plums. Deseed the plums. I just used my bare  hands to do it. Place the plums in a saucepan. Keep on a low flame until the skin bursts.
On a different pan, heat the oil and add the paanch phoron mix and round red chillies. When  the spices crackle, add this to the sauce.
Add salt, crushed red pepper and sugar.
Bring the mixture to a low boil until it has thickened and almost half and mushy. (Mine took nearly 20-25 minutes). Taste to see whether it is sweet or tangy enough.

Use warm or refrigerate it for use later.

Being from India, I used it to eat with dal, rice and dollops of this spicy sauce.
Try and let me know what you think of this recipe.
