Spicy Tomato Chutney - A travel recipe

Many prefer to take home made dishes while travelling. Tomato chutney is one such. Adding a bit more spiciness to it will enhance the taste and life of the chutney.

Tomato - 6 nos
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 6 pods
Red Chillies - 8 nos
Shallots (Small Onions) - 6 nos
Salt - to tast
Oil - 3 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 spn
Hing - 2 pinches

Grind all the ingredients except oil and mustard seeds in a blender to a very fine paste. Add oil in a shallow bottom pan and when hot add mustard seeds. When the splutter add the ground paste and cook well till the oil floats on top.

Note: Keep stirring occassionally so that the paste doesnot settle at the bottom of the pan.

Lady's finger - 1 kg
Amchur powder - 1/2 tspn (optional)
Corn flour - 1/4 kg
Bengal gram flour - 2 tbsp
