TOMATO CHUTNEY



Here's a quick n spicy tomato chutney recipe, which you can whip up in 15-20 minutes with only 3-4 ingredients to serve with any good South Indian snack:

Ingredients:
Tomatoes..... 5
Green/Red Chillies...: 8-10 if less hot, 2-3 more if u need spicier
Salt to taste
Garlic..... 2-3 pods (optional)

Method:
1. Heat 4 tbsp oil in a pan, add split chillies and fry for a minute.
2. Add sliced tomatoes & garlic pods and mix well. Fry until the entire water content of tomatoes disappears... the quantity almost halves at this stage. Keep stirring in between. The process takes about 15 mins.
3. Add salt.
4. Remove from fire and let it cool.
5. Grind in a mixer to a fine paste.

Note: At no stage is any amount of water added in the recipe... not even while grinding. Some people prefer this chutney as coarsely ground. This chutney tastes well with plain steamed rice, appams, dosas and idlis.
(This has no tempering of any sort.)
