TOMATO CHUTNEY

t chutney

Some times we get bored with same old coconut chutney with dosa and idli,at that time this Tomato chutney will be a great choice and it goes very well with any thing like dosa, idli, hot steamed rice or even with chapathi. Same thing happened to me this morning at breakfast time I don’t want to make same chutney for dosa, I am craving for some thing tangy and spicy then I checked my fridge there were some beautiful red tomatoes and here I go with the Tomato chutney

INGREDIENTS:---

Tomato ---- 3 medium (red ripe tomatoes)

Green chilies --- 5-6 or according to your taste

Tamarind --- 1 inch piece
Coriander seeds --- 1 tea sp
Cumin seeds --- 1&1/2 tea sp
Garlic -- 4 cloves
Salt to taste or 1 tea sp
Oil -- 1 tab sp
Coriander leaves --- 1 tab sp chopped

Tomato chutney
METHOD:---
1. Cut tomatoes in to small pieces and slit green chillies and leave a side
2.Heat a pan and add coriander seeds and cumin seeds fry till they change the color and nice aroma comes out.
3. Remove from the pan and grind in to a fine powder.
4. Now heat oil in the same pan add green chilies and tomatoes and fry till tomatoes become soft. Then add tamarind piece to the cooked tomatoes and leave a side to cool.
5.After tomatoes cool down add this green chilies and tomatoes, tamarind and salt to the coriander and cumin powder grind in to a smooth paste
6. At the end add garlic cloves and chopped coriander leaves, grind for a second to blend well.
7. Remove from the blender jar and serve with dosa, idli or any thing you like.
