Tomato chutney-Chutney in a jiffy!

Aptly named "chutney in a jiffy", this is a great rescue when it comes to chutneys and dips. Absolutely no cooking required and is over when you blend the ingredients together. While i did it for the first time,  i did feel like i was doing one of those "powerful blender" ads where the lady pops in the ingredients to blend and a colorful and exotic looking  juice comes out. But when i tasted it, it was mind-blowing! I never realized these simple ingredients in our pantry combined could give such a great taste! You would not go back to your old tomato chutney after you have tasted this. A no cook version and bursts out with freshness and flavor. Glad i imported the recipe from my friend's mother in law! Goes perfect with idlis,dosas and almost anything! A real chatpat one!


3 big tomatoes
6 garlic pods
3 red chillies
1/4 tsp jeera
salt to taste

For seasoning

1/4 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp urad dhal
1/8 tsp hing
1/8 tsp jeera
curry leaves a few
1 tsp oil


Chop tomatoes and garlic and run it in the blender along with redchillies and jeera without adding water.
Heat the oil and season it with the seasoning ingredients and add the required salt.Serve it, store it or freeze it!
