Tomato Chutney | Thakkalli Thokku

Tomato Thokku/Chutney is one of the most delicious cutney we can make at home and very simple and easy to make. This can be transformed into many dishes like Tomato Rice or base sauce for Pizza and many other. It can be used as a spread to any paratha or bread.
Tomato Thokku can also be served with any appetizer, Idly or Dosa. It is the the best chutney to take to any travel since the shelf life is longer. Whenever we go for travel either by car or air, I pack some chutney and roti's or idly in hand, spread and roll them and munch them.
Today for the Blogging Marathon i chose the theme- One sauce and two dishes. I thought this will be a good match for the sauce and two dishes will be posted in the next two days.



Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients

5 Big Tomatoes chopped
3 table spoon Sesame Oil
1 teas poon Mustard seeds
1/2 tea spoon Fenugreek Seeds
1-2 tea spoon Chili powder (as per the spice)
A pinch of Asafoetida
Salt as required
Curry leaves/Onions- Optional

Method
In a pan add the Oil and let it heat. Once heated add the mustard seeds, Fenugreek seeds, Asafoetida and allow it to splutter.
Add the chopped tomatoes and keep the gas in sim for 15-20 minutes. Allow it to cook slowly until the oil separates.
Add salt and Chili powder, mix until it raw smell goes away.
Once cooled store it in a air tight container.

NOTES
It can be served with Curd rice, paratha, Bread, Naan and Rice.
