Tomato chutney is a popular Indian condiment that goes well with snacks, breakfast, and even main courses. It can also be used as a marinade or a simple dipping sauce.
It has a tangy and spicy flavour that pairs well with the richness and depth of flavour found in many Indian dishes.
Tomato chutney is a simple recipe made with fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, and spices.
To make delicious tomato chutney, always use ripe and flavourful tomatoes. Choose tomatoes with a bright red colour and a sweet and tangy flavour.
The flavour of the chutney is heavily influenced by the tomato quality, so choose the best ones.
Make sure to cut the tomatoes into small pieces. This speeds up the cooking time and ensures that they blend well with the chutney. Larger chunks do not cook evenly or blend as well as smaller chunks.
Instead of store-bought pastes, use fresh garlic. This will enhance the flavour and aroma of your chutney.
Tomato chutney gets its distinct flavour from spices. The amount of spices you use, however, is determined by your personal taste.
Begin with a small amount of each spice and adjust to taste. Add more chilli powder or green chilies for a spicier chutney. Reduce the number of spices for a milder version.
Sweeteners such as jaggery or brown sugar are preferred for tomato chutney. If you don’t have any jaggery or brown then as an alternative, regular sugar can be used.
Jaggery or brown sugar, on the other hand, is preferable. They help to contribute a caramelised flavour that complements the tangy and spicy flavours.
Tomato chutney is a versatile condiment that enhances the flavour and depth of Indian dishes. Serve alongside an Indian buffet to enhance the flavour.
