Tomato-Garlic Chutney With Coriander Leaves' Flavour!

Tomato-Garlic Chutney
This chutney is famous among our relatives. Let me write the recipe now.  This is very easy to make!


1.  1 and a 1/2 Kg. (or 15 nos.) Ripe Banglore Tomatoes.

2.  1 Full garlic, peeled.

3.  2" Ginger, peeled and sliced.

4.  6-7 Green chillies

5. 1 Green capsicum (Optional)

6.  2 tbs. Red chilli powder.

7.  1 bunch Coriander leaves, washed and cleaned.  You can include some Curry                 leaves too!

8.  1  tsp. Gharam masala powder.

9.  1/2 tsp. Turmeric powder (haldi powder).

10. 2 tsp. Cumin seeds (Jeera).

11. 2 tsp. Sugar.

12. Salt to taste (Around 1 1/2 tbs. for this can taste and add more, later)

13. 1/2 cup Gingily oil or any cooking oil.


Put these ingredients in a mixie jar...garlic, ginger, green chillies, 1-2 tomatoes, capsicum and grind first into a paste.

Place the kadaai or thick vessel in the stove and pour oil and then jeera (cumin seeds).  When the jeera begins to get brown in colour, add the above mentioned paste. You can smell the roasted jeera and that is enough.  Don't leave it for long in the oil.

Mix it with a ladle.

First round of grinding!
Pour this paste in the oil and mix well.
Second round of grinding. Always cut the tomatoes before grinding.

Cut the coriander and then grind with a couple of tomatoes.  You will be able to grind them into a paste fast.  Pour it into the vessel in the stove.  Stir it.

Grind all the other tomatoes and pour into the vessel.  Stir it.  Add haldi powder, sugar, chilli powder, salt etc.  Let it boil for nearly 20-25 mts. or until it becomes thicker.  Add the gharam masala powder.  Leave/stir for 5 more mts.

The chutney is ready.  Store it in an airtight jar.  Take the required amount of chutney in another vessel and use.  This can be used for a week or so for dosa, idly, chapaati or can be mixed with rice too!

I don't use onion in this chutney.  You can add it if you want a change in taste!

Please try this and tell me if you liked it.  Please write to me if you have got any doubt.
