SPICY SWEET N SOUR TOMATO CHUTNEY


  • 2 Red onions , finely sliced
  • 4 Tomato , chopped
  • 3 Garlic cloves , sliced
  • 6 Red chillies , chopped (add more for more spice)
  • 2 cm piece Ginger , peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Red wine vinegar optional you can use normal vinegar
  • 5 Cardamom seeds, powdered
  • Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
Take the oil in a pan and heat it up. Saute the onions till translucent. Add the ginger, garlic and the chilies to the pan and saute till the raw smell is gone. Add the tomatoes to the pan and cook till mushy. Switch off the flame and add the remaining ingredients.  Add salt to taste. Once it has cooled down add the vinegar, blend it all in a blender till it becomes a smooth paste. This chutney can be stored in a glass jar for over a month. It is an ideal dipping sauce for many starters and can also be used as a spread for sandwiches. It gives that extra zing to the meal. If you are making this sauce as a dip, you can add a little hot water while cooking to make it of dipping consistency. In order to store it as a chutney, cook it for 5 minutes after blending , so that the moisture is gone and it becomes slightly thick and shiny.
I hope you guys enjoyed this lovely starter to the meal. This is a very healthy starter that can be had on a diet. When steamed this contains zero oil. Experiment with the wrappers by using wheat flour. Try different fillings as per taste. These momos can be made ahead. Store them in a container by arranging them in layers with parchment paper in between to prevent it for sticking together. Steam / fry when needed and serve with the chutney. Remember to serve it fresh and hot, straight off the stove..! Enjoy.!!
