Garlic Chutney

We were having thepla for dinner and I wanted something tangy to eat it with.  And I looked at a few recipes of the chutney - there were many - but this was the simplest.  It tasted good too.

Onion - 1
Garlic pods - 8-10 ( depending on the garlic flavour that you want and the size of the onion!)
Tomato - 1 medium
Tamarind paste - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - big pinch
Chili powder - 11/2 tsp ( as per spiciness desired)
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 -3 tsp ( you can be slightly liberal here)
Mustard - 1/2 tsp

Peel onion - cut to medium size pieces
Tomato - chop into four
Peel the garlic pods

Grind the raw ingredients - onion, tomato, garlic with tamarind,salt,chilie  to a fine paste

Take a wok.
Heat oil, add asafoetida, mustard.
Allow the mustard to pop
Add the ground paste.
Mix, sauté 
Simmer on low fire. Cover for a while till the raw taste disappears and the paste comes together
Roughly takes about 10-15 minutes ( but check periodically as it simmers)

It was tangy, spicy, garlicky and yummy.
