    1. To make the chutney: Combine sugar, vinegar, ginger, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, cloves and red chilli flakes in a large saucepan. Bring to simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Add rhubarb, onion and sultanas. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until rhubarb is tender and mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
    2. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    3. To cook pork: Sprinkle pork with cumin, salt and pepper. Heat oil in large, heavy frying pan over high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.
    4. Transfer pork to a roasting tin. Brush with 6 tablespoons of the chutney. Place in preheated oven, brushing occasionally with 6 more tablespoons chutney. Cook until thermometer inserted into centre registers 68 degrees C, about 25 minutes. Slice pork into medallions. Garnish with coriander sprigs and serve with remaining chutney.
