Tomato Chutney Recipe

INGREDIENTS 

  • 3 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 medium onions cubed (optional)
  • 4 to 6 red chilies or green chillies or ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon chana dal or bengal gram or 1½ to 2 tbsp peanuts or sesame seeds
  • ½ tablespoon urad dal or skinned black gram or peanuts (optional)
  • 1 to 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon jeera or cumin
  • Salt as needed
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric or haldi as needed
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Preparations

  • Heat a pan with 1 tablespoon oil. 
  • On a medium flame roast one tablespoon chana dal & half teaspoon urad dal until aromatic & deep golden. 
  • Add half teaspoon cumin & saute for a minute. Remove to a plate & set aside to cool completely.
  • Next add 4 to 6 red chilies and fry until they turn crisp. 
  • Then add 1 cubed onion & 2 garlic cloves.
  • Fry them until a sweet aroma comes out from the onions. This takes about 3 to 5 mins. 
  • When the onions turn golden add 3 large chopped tomatoes, ¼ teaspoon salt & 1/8 teaspoon turmeric. 
  • Saute until soft & mushy. The raw smell of onions and tomatoes must go away completely.
  • Cool this and blend until smooth. 
  • You may need to pour little water if using peanuts.
  • If you like thick chutney & the tomatoes are pulpy you can also skip water completely.
