My Mom's Recipe For A Delicious Tomato Chutney Using Heirloom Tomatoes


tomato ginger chutney indian home cooking mummy mom's recipe

Every year when the weather gets warmer and summer is around the corner, farmers' markets sell heirloom tomatoes. These tomatoes are my favorite. The weird-shaped tomatoes are so appealing. I use the green and yellow heirloom tomatoes in salads, whereas the red tomatoes go in making a tomato chutney. A recipe that I learned from my mom, so thank you, Mummy.

This chutney goes great with chicken, or on a sandwich, or with seared tuna, or even mixed with rice.

Heat oil in a 2 qt sauce pan over medium heat.

Add tomatoes and jaggery. Mix. Cook on low heat for forty five minutes. Stir once every five minutes.

When the consistency looks like that of a chutney (tomato has reduced to almost half of its original quantity), remove from heat and set aside to cool. 

You can refrigerate this chutney and it will be good for use within a week.
