To make tomato chutney
In a medium skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, shallots and spices and cook, until golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the honey and sugar and cook until caramelized, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the fresh tomatoes, stewed tomatoes and vinegar, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 40 minutes.

To make the sauce:
Bring carrot juice to a simmer in saucepan. Stir in tomato chutney and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in herbs and spices.

To make the lobster roll:
Stir together mayonnaise and Sriracha. Add lobster and kimchi and stir until just combined. Divide lobster mixture between 2 cabbage leaves, placing mixture at the wide end of the leaf and rolling tightly. Wrap tightly in plastic and chill in fridge until ready to serve.

Remove from heat and stir in the raisins, cilantro, mint, basil, lime juice and jalapeno.

To serve:
Stir a pinch of nettles into Kecap Manis reduction. Brush lobster rolls with glaze. Spread carrot sauce on plates. Slice roll in half and place cut side up on top of sauce. Toss herb leaves with lime juice and divide between rolls, placing leaves on top. Top each with a small spoonful of caviar.
