Fiery Tomato Chutney

Print  Friendly and PDF
This is yet another recipe from MIL. Did I not tell you that I am going to learn new dishes from her? Well, not just new dishes but old ones with her special twist. This chutney goes oh-so-well with so many dishes and does double duty as a dip for pita and chips.Usually I have this with Yogurt Sevai(Rice Noodles in Yogurt Sauce), Lime Rice, Savory Ball Pancakes. This time though  I had this with Methi Roti( Fenugreek Flat Bread). Umm delicious.
Sending this and Four Seasons chutneys-Peanut(Winter),Pumpkin And Carrot(Fall), Cilantro N Mint(Spring), Tomato Chutney my Way(Summer) , Ridge Gourd Peel N SweetPea Chutney, Homemade Chutney Powder(Idli Podi) to Jagruti's Complete My Thali - Chutney event.
Ingredients:
  • 1 medium Onion, roughly chopped
  • 5 ripe Roma Tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger/Garlic paste
  • 1 stalk Curry Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 dry Red Chili (3, if you want to feel the burn)
  • Salt for taste
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
Procedure:
  • Coarsely grind chopped onion,tomatoes along with curry leaves,red chilies and cilantro.
  • Heat the Olive oil in a thick,deep bottomed pan and add the mustard seeds. Once the seeds start to sputter, add the ginger/garlic paste.Fry till it loses raw smell.
  • Pour the ground mixture into the pan.Add salt.
  • Here comes the difficult part -- Simmer the mixture on a low-medium flame, stirring frequently until it loses all the moisture and the oil separates.Takes about ~20-30 minutes.But really depends on how much watery it is to begin with.

  • Cool and serve as an accompaniment to Yogurt Sevai(Rice Noodles in Yogurt Sauce), Lime Rice, Savory Ball Pancakes, Roti or as a dip.

Enjoy!

  15. A different style of chutney. I always have a hesitation towards grinding raw onion for chutney thinking of the strong smell it would give to the chutney. Now that you have given your MIL's special I will try it out..
