Tamatar chatni (Tomato chutney)

    35 min

    This is an Indian red tomato chutney which has loads of flavour. The lengthy time to make this is due to the fact that it should stand and cool for a long while before it is served. It's a good idea to make this a day or two in advance.

    Really quick and easy to make and goes lovely with curries and cold meat.  -  09 Sep 2012

    Really good, although I couldn't find any tamarind extract. Used a little cumin instead and it still turned out good.  -  03 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Make this chutney last night for Indian dinner party to serve with pakora recipe that I also found on this site. I didn´t have tamarind so I used cumin and garam masala to season. It made quite a bit for what I needed (as a dipping sauce) so next time I will half the recipe.  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
