Chutneys are served with almost every meal in Pakistan, especially as relishes with curries, but also as sauces for hot dishes (especially meats). They can be fresh or cooked, and are made from a wide variety of ingredients. They range in flavor from sweet or sour, spicy or mild, or any combination of these; they can be thin or chunky and can be made with fruits or vegetables or both.
While Pakistani chutneys are delicious additions to curries, most cooks wouldn't want to serve them on ham, roasts or sandwiches. Usually freshly prepared as opposed to cooked, Pakistani chutneys don't contain vinegar or added sugar.
