    Method

    1. Heat oil in non-reactive saucepot. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add garlic, ginger, and jalapeño; sauté 1 minute more. Add tomatoes and cook until the juices start to come out. Add the raisins, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce and salt. Bring mixture to a low simmer and cook slowly until mixture is very thick, about 40 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons lemon juice.
    2. Reserve until needed at room temperature.
    3. For the corn fritters, preheat fryer to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a bowl. Whisk together eggs, milk, and sour cream until a smooth mixture is formed; stir in corn and scallions.
    4. Test fritter batter by carefully spooning some of the batter into the hot oil. If mixture breaks apart add more flour to tighten mixture. Ideal fritters are light, puffy, cooked throughout and golden brown.
    5. Serve fritters hot with tomato chutney on the side.
