Tomato Chutney

A simple tomato chutney recipe. Courtesy papukka.

Tomatoes - 4 + 1 ( 5) large red tomatoes
Red chillie - 2-3
Green chillie - 1
Garlic-ginger paste - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 3 pods finely chopped
Salt, chillie powder - to taste.
Tamarind - 1/8 tsp ( optional)
Corriander leaves for garnishing
Methi+ Mustard powder - 1/4 tsp ( acc to taste). To make this powder, dry roast a tbsp each of the two and finely powder, store in bottle for ready use.

Chop one tomato finely, keep aside.
In a wok, add little oil and add the 4 tomatoes, and scald them slightly along with red chillie.
The skin should be scalded and split a little.
Grind with ginger garlic paste, and green chillie
In the same wok add the ground paste, and simmer .
Add the finely chopped tomato and garlic
Add salt, and chillie powder
Before taking off the heat, add pinch of methi, mustard powder.
Season with oil, mustard.
Garnish with corriander leaves.

Very tasty, the chillies to be added accorded to the spice tolerance level.
If you reduce the spice, it will be like a curry. In that case, add boiled eggs and it will be a tasty egg curry.
