What goes in This Tomato Chutney?
There is nothing groundbreaking in it; it is just a classic combination of ingredients and flavour!
Tomatoes- use any tomatoes you want or you have! I used gourmet tomatoes. If the tomatoes are sweet and juicy, drizzle some lemon juice at the end of the cooking to balance the taste!
Sweet Mango leather– known as Amsotto, you will find in your local supermarket or nearby Indian store. If you live in Australia and don’t get Amsotto in your nearest Indian store, then use dried mango slices that you will easily get from Woolworths or Coles!
Khejur– Pitted Date.
Raisins- Use dark or golden raisins! Golden raisins are also known as Sultanas!
Panch Phoron– A typical Bengali five whole spice mix that you can easily make at home!
Cashew– add fried cashew to add some crunch in your chutney!
Bhaja Moshlar Guro– Bengali spice blend! The key ingredients you need for this spice blend are roasted cumin seeds, dry red chilli and dried bay leaf.
