This Tomato Khejur Amsotto Chutney or Tomato Date Mango Bar Chutney – is a compulsion on a Durga Pujo special menu or Asthamir Bhog along with Bhoger Khichuri!  Not only for special meals but it also adds an extra edge to your everyday lunch or dinner! The sweetness from Amsotto (sweet Mango leather) Khejur (Date) and Kismis (Raisins), a hint of tanginess from tomato. It’s insanely good! Make a batch of this quick and easy chutney, and store in the fridge!

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!
