Tomato Chutney

This is my favorite chutney. I have this with Appam, Dosa, and my personal favorite Bread Toast. This is the only dish I learned to cook properly when I was in Pune.  I used to cook it almost all the weekends and gobble up with toasted bread. This used to be my breakfast and dinner everyday. 

This chutney is easy to prepare and I love this so much...And here goes the preperation.

  1. Tomato             -   3 medium
  2. Onion                -   1 medium
  3. Mustard seeds    -  1/2 tsp
  4. Salt                  -   As required
  5. Asafetida           -   A pinch (optional) 
  6. Chili Powder       -   2 tsp
  7. Oil                    -   1 tbsp

  1. In a mixer make a fine pulp of onion and tomato.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds.
  3. After the mustard seeds are spluttered, remove the pan from the heat source.
  4. Add the chili powder and just stir it for 2-3 sec and add the Tomato-onion pulp right away. 
  5. Place the pan back to the heat source and stir.
  6. And continue on a medium heat till all the water is evaporated and the tomato is cooked. 
  7. It will become 1/4th the initial amount. 
  8. Add a pinch of Asafetida at this point and saute.
  9. Switch off the heat source when the oil starts to appear.
