BM #84 Week 3 day 2 - 

This week I am showcasing some dips and chutneys to jazz up the menu. This post was lying in my drafts since last summer. We had an abundance of tomatoes and mint in our backyard and so I made this combination which we enjoyed through out the summer.

Ingredients - 

Mint leaves, washed 1 cup
Green tomatoes, washed and cubed 2 cups
Salt as needed
Green Chillies 5-6 (or as needed)
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Tamarind extract 1 Tbsp (Optional - I didn't use as the raw tomatoes were sour)
Garlic 1-2 cloves (Optional)
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Sesame Seeds 1 Tbsp, Coriander seeds 1 tsp, Methi seeds a pinch, Asafoetida 2 pinches, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and the ret of the seasoning ingredients. After the dals brown and the mustard seeds splutter, saute the mint and green chilies.

Add the chopped green tomato, mix well. Cover and let the green tomatoes cook through.

Sprinkle salt and turmeric. Mix well. Remove from heat. Add the sliced garlic cloves if using. Add coriander leaves if using.

Grind into a fine or coarse paste as per preference.

Serve with steaming hot rice and ghee!


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Makes approx 1 1/2 cups
