Tomato-Onion Chutney

May 14, 2011

This is a quick side dish with some fun flavors. It goes well with a wide variety of dishes, but it’s especially nice with the chicken tikka masala that I just posted the other day.

You will need…

  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (~2 cups)
  • 2 t cumin seeds
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 t ground coriander
  • 1 cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, excess juice poured off

Then you:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and cumin seeds. Saute until golden brown and soft, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the garlic and ginger; allow to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the coriander; allow to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Stir in the tomatoes; reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes, or until a chunky chutney begins to form.
  6. Season with fresh cracked pepper as needed!
