Tomato Chutney ( For Vegan Thursdays )

Today is the last thursday of the month and so the members of the Group Vegan Thursdays ( started by priya suresh ) will be posting a vegan recipe today.  We have decided to post a vegan recipe every first and last thursday of the month. Any one interested in joining can get more details here . This group has been started with a motive to make our food vegan i.e. totally free from any animal products.

For todays post I made this tomato chutney which is very versatile and can be easily stored for many weeks in the fridge without getting spoit. Many times we have extra tomatoes in the house which are ripening . This is the right time to use them in this sweet sour and spicy chutney which can be had with almost any snack or roti.

In winters when the tomatoes are red , juicy and cheap you can make this chutney in bulk and keep it.



Ingredients :

5 / 6..............................Tomatoes
1/2 tsp.........................fenugreek seeds (methi)
1/2 tsp.........................Mustard seeds (sarson)
1 /2 tsp.....................Cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp.........................Fennel seeds (saunf)
1 tsp........................Onion seeds (kalounji )
1/2 cup...................jaggery
1 tbsp......................chilly flakes
2 tbsp.....................oil
salt




Method :

Wash and cut the tomatoes into medium sized cubes.
Crush all the five seeds slightly . This together is called paanch poran masala.
In a pan heat oil and add the crushed seeds.
When they splutter , add the tomato cubes and stir for a while.
After 2 minutes add the jagerry , chilly flakes and salt .
Cook till the mixture becomes thick like a murabba or a sauce.
Cool and store in glass jar.
This stays well for almost a week if outside and upto a month in fridge.
