Raw Tomato Chutney - simple & quick

Raw tomato(tomato kayi in kannada) makes delicious chutney.


My mom used to make this all the time for chapati/roti and thalipeet.Omg! I used to love it and end up having a lot of it.I could even have it all day..all week.Goes well with everything like rice,poori,roti,thalipeet.I usually add few drops of peanut oil to rice and mix with this chutney or sometimes even add tempering.

Here is the recipe of  quick tangy tomato chutney with very less ingredients.


Raw Tomato - 5-6
green chilly - 4
tamarind-1/2 tspn (optional,if the tomatoes are not so sour)
coriander leaves-1 Tbspn
jaggery - 1/2 tspn
salt to taste

Tempering(optional)-Heat 1 tspn oil in a pan.Add 1/4 tspn musard seed when it pops add a pinch of hing.Add this tempering on chutney and enjoy.


1)Cut the tomato lengthwise.Heat oil in a pan ,add the tomatoes,whole green chilly and fry them in medium flame for 8-10 min or till  all the rawness has gone and turned golden brown.Add coriander leaves with string(adds the taste)
2)Blend the above fried mixture with salt and jaggery .
3)Isn't it easy?Tastes delicious with chapati/roti,thalipeet or just with anything

Note:I got fresh tomatoes from the farm nearby and  it was sour enough to get tangy chutney.If the tomatoes aren't sour and you want tangy chutney  then add 1/2 tspn tamarind while blending.
