Tomato O kacha aamer chutney(Tomato & green mango chutney)

Chutney is a sweetened or sweet-sour relish in bengali cuisine prepared from the seasonal fruits available and is a must after a spicy meal. Normally, chutney is served towards the end of the main meal and before the dessert. It provides a touch of freshness to your tongue which helps you get ready to enjoy your after-meal dessert fully. Bengali chutney is totally different from South Indian Chutneys, as it is mainly prepared out of tart products like tomatoes, pineapple, apple, green mango, plum, berries with dry fruits in it seasoned with Panch phoron or mustard seed mainly.
Today I'll share a simply delicious chutney recipe with you........i.e.
Tomato & Green mango chutney


Ingredients :
Tomato(medium) : 2
Green Mango : 1
Sugar : 1/3 cup
Dry red chilli : 1 (broken into 2)
Panch phoron : 1 tsp.(mixture of cumin, black cumin, fenugreek, mustard & fennel seed-mix all in similar quantity)
Oil : 1 tblsp.
Turmeric powder : a pinch
Salt : a pinch

Method :
  • Cut tomatoes in medium size chunks. Cut green mangoes around the seed an dtake out the flesh, then cut in cubes.
  • Heat oil in a pan, season with dey red chilli and panch phoron, when seeds and chillies turn dark brown and you get the aroma, throw all cubed tomatoes and green mangoes. Add little salt and turmeric. stir together for a minute or two.
  • Add about 1 cup of water now and add sugar as per your taste, like if you want your chutney to be little soury, then add less sugar. This chutney is kind of sweet-sour, so add sugar according to it. SO don't add whole sugar at a time, first add, mix, then taste, if needed, add more.
  • When water almost evaporated and tomatoes/mangoes are soft and pulpy, your chutney is done. The flowness of chutney is also upto you, if you want thin chutney, then keep more gravy.
  • Your chutney is ready to serve, don't serve it hot, serve in room temperature or warm. You can also keep it refrigerator for 1/2 an hour before serving and serve.
