Tomato chutney

3 ripe roma tomatoes, washed,and cut into pieces
1 tbsp Red chilli powder
a pinch Turmeric powder
Marble size jaggery
Salt to taste
Coriander chopped for garnishing
Vaggarane or Tadka
1/2 tbsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tbsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
1tsp urad dal
6 fresh Curry leaves
Pinch of Hing or Asofoetida

Heat oil in a in kadai and add the ingredients listed under tadka When the curry leaves start to change color, add tomato pieces, salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder. Cook and cover till tomato pieces are soft. I added water to get the medium liquid consistency which goes well with hot rice. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Instant tomato chutney is ready to serve with hot rice,chappati,dosa and Idli.
