Tomato(Thakkali) Kaara Chutney ( Spicy and simple Tomato Chutney) or can also call it as Red chutney
Remember few days back had posted Vellai Paniyaram and mentioned about the tomato kara chutney that goes well with it, and here I am with recipe. Got delayed in posting as had taken break and since last two weeks was fully occupied with kids as they had fallen sick one after the other and then me , next again the younger one. Now everything is back to normal and both are back to school. Next have to wait for the severe snow storm that is coming up tonight.
Here is the recipe for the Tomato kara chutney.
This chutney is ground in a raw form and tempered. If needed can temper and cook in low flame for few minutes.
Small onions - around 10
Ripe Tomatoes - 3
Red Chillies - 3 0r 4
Tamarind - 1 inch
Garlic - 3 or 4 flakes
Salt as needed
Curry leaves - few
Mustard seeds and urad dhal - very few
Gingelly/ sesame seed oil - 2 tsp
Soak red chillies(try using bedigai red chillies if you can as they give a very nice red color to any dish) in water for 10 -15 minutes. Squeeze and drain. Peel onions and garlic. Roughly chop tomatoes and grind everything along with salt and tamarind. Avoid using water and add few drops only when needed.
Remove and temper with the tempering ingredients. If you feel they are very raw in taste, then all you can do is pour the ground paste after tempering and let it to boil/cook for few minutes.
