Method:
  1. First, cut the tomatillo, the ginger and the green chillies into medium pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, and both the dals and fry until they turn little brownish.
  3. Then add the pieces of tomatillo, ginger and green chillies and the ball of the tamarind too. Fry till the tomatillo is cooked a little. Then add the hing and fry for a little while.
  4. Then remove it from the flame, and allow to cool for some time.

Uma, Very nice recipe. Came out well. One alteration I would do probably is remove the tamarind as it made the chutney very tangy. Perhaps the tomatiloes I used were very raw. Not sure.
