Tomato and Garlic Chutney

One of my favorite accompaniment for breakfast. I first had this when my mother-in-law made this for idli at our first meeting during my wedding preparations. It is a typical Chennai accompaniment they have mostly for tiff ins.

Good part of this chutney it is preservable up-to a month or so.


Ingredients

10 Garlic Cloves, peeled
1 kg Tomatoes
6 Curry leaves
1/4 cup Canola or Sesame seed oil
1/2 tsp Red Chili powder
1/4 tsp Asofetida (Hing)
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Salt

Method

  • Grind garlic to a coarse paste and pure tomatoes. Don't add water to both these ingredients
  • Now, heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. 
  • Add Garlic, curry leaves and hing. Saute for a minute
  • Next add turmeric. Stir for 20 sec. Let the turmeric color seep into the oil
  • Next, add tomato puree. Mix well. Cover the pan and cook for 20-30 min until oil separates from pan
  • Then add red chili powder and salt. Saute for another 15 min on low heat
  • Let it cool and don't cover the pan. 
  • Store it in a glass container and refrigerate
