Tomato Chutney

Ladies of our neighbourhood would have a usual talk when they see each other, "innentha meen kittye?"(Which fish you bought today?).Recently a lady commented that she didn't like the way those ladies talk and these kinds of inquiries are not sincere! I always believed ladies from the village areas start a healthy conversation by asking such silly matters. And their relationships get stronger because of these regular chitchats! It is difficult to understand for those who live in cities especially who thinks that the world is me and my family only..
If we didn't get fish, mom makes this curry for lunch as a side dish with other vegetable curry.. She creates such simple side dishes if she gets some chillies, tamarind or tomatoes and few shallots.. :)



Ingredients used,
tomatoes 4
garlic cloves 2
shallots 4
chilly powder 2 tsp
coconut oil
mustard seeds
curry leaves
salt



How mom prepared it,
Chop and Blend tomatoes in little water with shallots and garlic.
(You can use peeled tomatoes also).
Add salt and chilly powder.
Heat oil, allow mustard seeds to splutter, fry curry leaves and pour the tomato mixture into this.
Allow to boil , remove from fire.
