Place onion, raisins, prunes, ginger, mustard seeds, chillie, allspice, vinegar, sugar, and 2/3 of the water in a large saucepan. Set over medium-high heat, and bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 40 minutes.
Fruit chutneys are basically made by boiling fruit in acid, sugar and spices, and then simmering to reduce the liquids and fruit become soft and tender. Enjoy it with meats, chicken or curry dishes.
