Hello and welcome friends to my cosy corner once again. Today, I’m sharing a sweet and slightly tangy recipe of tomato chutney. It’s a great side dish to go with paranthas, pooris and a lunch platter consisting of rice, dal,potato-poppyseed curry(aloo posto). So let’s start with it—
- Tomato – 500 gms.
- Sugar – 200 gms.
- Salt – According to taste.
- Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
- Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp.
- Red Chilly Powder- 1 tsp.
- Asafoetida or Hing – A pinch.
- Five Spice -1 tsp.
- Raisins -2 tsp.
- Bay Leaf – 1.
Wash, cut and keep the tomatoes aside.
Take a wok and add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil and 1 bay leaf in it. Add 1 tsp of five spice and a pinch of asafoetida. When it crackles add the chopped tomatoes and next salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder and cover it. Let it cook.
When the tomatoes are half cooked, add the given amounts of sugar, garam masala and sprinkle some raisins.
Let the tomatoes and sugar get blended well and saute them for ten more minutes till all takes a saucy look.
Our tomato chutney is ready. It can be had with potato cutlets, stuffed paranthas, naan, bread rolls and the like.
