Thick Tomato Chutney Recipe
4 coarsely chopped tomatoes
4 coarsely chopped cloves garlic
40 g or about 3/4 cup finely chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 1/2 teaspoons Green Masala (refer Indian recipes)
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon brown vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 coarsely chopped onion
Place the tomatoes, garlic, coriander, Green Masala and cumin seeds in a liquidizer. Add the lemon juice. Blend on low speed until the ingredients are well mixed but not entirely liquidized. Pour the ingredients into a mixing bowl. Stir in the salt, sugar, vinegar and chili powder. Adjust to taste for salt, sweetness and ‘tang’ (strength – extra Green Masala or chili powder). Reserve in the fridge. Before serving, stir in the chopped onion.
To give this chutney extra ‘bite’, add 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped green chili with the other ingredients at the beginning of the steps. For a fresh, sweet taste, add a few sprigs of mint to the liquidizer.
