About this recipe: 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.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 3/4 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoons tamarind extract
  • salt

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a frying pan, cook onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Stir in garlic, and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, and cover; continue cooking until tomatoes are soft and begin to break down. Season with chilli powder, tamarind extract, and salt.
  2. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
