Green Tomato Chutney

Kayi Tomato Chutney. My ongoing Quest to try out something new propelled me into trying out this recipe . Using Raw Tomatoes is something I have never tried . I had noted this recipe from a TV cookery show as I am a avid follower of these shows almost religiously.

Approach to this chutney is a little different but the outcome says it all. It has a refreshing green color & tang of the tomatoes, off set by jaggery & the nutty feel of the peanuts & sesame.
Goes well with rice as well as rotis.

The recipe goes like this........

Ingredients :

Green Tomatoes - 3 no.s , roughly chopped
Green chillies- 7 no.s (use as required )
Curry leaves - 5 sprigs
Garlic - 6 pods , crushed
Coconut grated - 2 tbsps
Jaggery - 2 tsps
Peanuts - 2 tbsps, toasted
Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp, lightly toasted
Cooking oil - 2 tsps
Hing - a pinch
Turmeric powder

Method :

Lightly saute the chillies & then toss in the tomatoes & curry leaves. Cover & cook , stirring now & then till just done.
Now add the garlic , turmeric powder & the coconut & stir a couple of times . Let cool.
It is time to run it all in the blender without using any water.
Turn all this into the blender with the peanuts, sesame seeds, salt, jaggery & run on low speeds a couple of times. Or use the pulse button a few times . This will ensure in retaining the crunch of the peanuts.
Lastly , temper with mustard, Hing & curry leaves and enjoy a different chutney.
