Welcome to my Blog

Hmm you'll say...yet another food blog! And I'll beg to differ, although I must say my recipes are not hi-funda, and sometimes the pictures do not do justice to them (I'm working on that) but you'll find them extremely easy to cook, hassle free and down right delicious.
So if you are a newbie in the kitchen department or has not ventured into the kitchen for some strange reason (like me)...then you have come to the right place.

Happy Cooking!

Tomato Chutney

Click to enlarge image

Tomatoes are abundant come summer and I always stock up loads of them for a spicy chutney which is so versatile, it can be eaten with toasted bread to even biryani. So here is my version of tomato chutney...

6-7 vine ripened tomatoes
2 tbs oil
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin mustard powder
1 green chilli slit in halves
Cilantro sprigs for garnish

For tempering:
generous amount of curry leaves
2 dried red chillies
1 tsp each-cumin and mustard seeds

Chop tomatoes finely and keep aside.

Heat the oil and add cumin and mustard seeds, as they start to splutter add the dried red chillies. Finally throw in the curry leaves.

Slip in the chopped tomatoes and add ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric and salt and shut the lid.

When it starts to leave oil on the sides add the green chilli and cilantro.

Finally add the cumin and mustard powder and mix in well. Here I served it with Chicken Biryani.
