In a pan over medium heat, combine rhubarb, vinegar, zest, currants, sugar, ginger, crushed red pepper, 1/4 tsp. salt and cloves. Stir in 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until rhubarb breaks down and liquid is almost completely absorbed, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool to room temperature.
Warm oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, until browned on both sides and cooked through (an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of chop should read 145°F), 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with chutney.
