A heavy schedule and a lazy attitude but still a desire to eat tasteful stuff are a perfect combination to try out quick fix recipies like Tomato Chutney. Its easy and real quick to make. Lack of any major spices let the tangyness of tomato come to the fore in this side dish. The green chillies give it opposite edge.If you are game to it...then this is your dish!
6 Medium sized Tomatoes (approx 3 cups when diced)
2-4 Green Chillies (less if you want it less hot)
1 cup of finely chopped onions
3 large cloves of Garlic
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder (optional)
Corriander leaves for garnishing (optional)
Oil to cook
Salt to taste
Cube the tomatoes, finely dice green chillies and garlic.
Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan. Add the onion and the green chillies to it and saute it till the onions are translucent. Add the garlic to this. Saute for 3-4 minutes.Sprinkle in the turmeric, salt and the red chilli powder. Saute for a couple of minutes futher to take away the rawness of the spices. Add the tomatoes now and close it with a lid to cook. I usually cook this dish entirely on low flame and recommend the same.
Keep on opening the lid in between and mixing it. The tomatoes will loose all its water and shrink to half its original proportion. When this happens remove from flame, garnish it with corriander leaves.
Serve it with hot Parathas . An Egg Bhurgi along the side would complete the picture.
