TOMATO DATE CHUTNEY & AWARD


 
Still I can remember, my father couldn't finish his lunch except a sweet chutney dish, so my mum used to make chutney and stored it in the refrigerator. This chutney brings back a lot of childhood memories. From my heart and soul, I am the follower of my father. In my mind I always consider my parent as my 'Guru'. So this scrumtious flavourful chutney dish I dedicate to 'My Guru'.
 

INGREDIENTS:
5 nos. Tomato (chopped)
22-25 Dates/khejur (seedless & chopped)
2 OZ Mango Papad (finely chopped)
2 tbsps Raisins
1 tsp Grated Ginger
4 Dry Red Chillies
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Panch Phoron (combination of mustard, fennel, nigella, cumin and fenugreek seeds)
1/3 cup to 1/2 cup Sugar (according the sourness of tomato)
1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste


METHOD:
Dry roast cumin seeds and 2 dry red chillies for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pound coarsely. Set aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add panch phoron and 2 dry red chillies.
When panch phoron crackles, add chopped tomatoes, ginger and dates in it.
Saute for 2 minutes, add turmeric powder, salt and mango papad in it. Cook for 5-6 minutes on medium heat till tomato turns mushy and everything mix up well.
This time add raisins and sugar in it. 
Keep stirring for another 2-3 minutes on low heat.
Switch off the heat now, add coarsely pounded cumin-dry red chilli with lemon juice. Keep a stir. Serve cold as a side dish.
