Green Tomato Chutney

I am posting many chutney’s and dips, coz we all love these little relishes at home. Also, the last few tomatoes in my veggie garden weren’t gonna get chance of ripening coz cold front. So that means we picked them when they were green. One of the numerous dishes I did with them was ofcourse this chutney.

Yields – 2 cups| Prep Time: 5 min.| Cooking Time: 15 min.

Green tomatoes – 10 (about 1 ½ cups when chopped)
Green Chilies – 2
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp.
Flax Seeds – 1 tsp. (optional)
Mustard Seeds – ½ tsp.
Sesame Seeds – ½ tsp.
Coconut - 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste
Oil – 1 tsp.

My DD picking up Green tomatoes & Chilies for me!

Method of Preparation:

~ Clean and chop tomatoes. Place it in a microwavable bowl with 1 tbsp. of water and microwave high for 10 min (with two intervals)
~ In a pan, heat oil, add mustard seeds.
~ Once they splutter, add cumin seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds.
~ Fry for few seconds, and add green chilies.
~ Now add the microwaved tomatoes and continue to cook for few minutes.
~ Switch off the heat and let it cool.
~ Grind the cooled mix with coconut & salt to a smooth paste.
~ Enjoy with some rice and sambar. It can be served with Dosa or Chapati too.

- You can skip microwaving and cook tomatoes later on cooktop.
