Tomato Chutney


Tomato chutney is a must-have in our home. I love the spice and the tanginess it adds although many times I grab a spoon and eat it right out of the bowl. We eat it with pretty much everything but my favourite way to eat it is with fried eggs.
Tomato chutney is easy to make and can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. This recipe is a great way to add some Indian flavour to your meals, and it’s a condiment that will quickly become a staple in your kitchen.

Tomato chutney is a flavorful and versatile condiment that is often used in Indian cuisine. It's a popular condiment that can be used as a dip, spread, or as a side dish. The tangy and slightly sweet flavor of the tomatoes is complemented by the use of traditional Indian spices and herbs.
