Coming to today’s recipe: this is simple and instant tomato chutney (did I mention yummy?) that can be prepared within a few minutes with easily available ingredients.
- 4 medium Tomatoes, cut into small pieces
- 2 tsp dry Red Chili Powder or according to individual taste
- 1 tsp Sambar Powder (I used MTR)
- 1 tsp Oil
- ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
- ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
- ¼ tsp Asafetida (Hing, Inguva)
- Salt as required
Heat oil in a deep-bottomed pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds along with tomato pieces + chili powder + sambar powder.
Mix well, cover and leave for some time until all the water from tomatoes gets absorbed and the mixture becomes thick. Turn off the stove and leave the tomato mixture until it cools down.
Sometimes the tomatoes become so soft if we mash them well with spatula while cooking, so there will be no need to grind it again. If it is not getting softer, just grind it in a blender until smooth. Adjust salt and chili powder.
This yummy chutney goes well with rice/chapathis/dosas.
