    Green unripe firm tomatoes

For a working mother like me, Chutneys, Aachars, Raitas are like little ‘Culinary Elves’…..I won’t call them accompaniments. Many times they are my Main dish. In the mad rush, every morning to get to work on time, getting my son ready and many other chores, Chutneys and Raitas are very very handy…some quick chutney or a Raita along with some Rotis or Plain Rice that’s lunch for me many times.

Chutneys, Raitas, Achaars, and Papads have a special place in Indian Cuisine. Along with taste they also add color to your plate.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for Khatti-Meethi Green Tomato Chutney.

 For the Green Tomato Chutney you will need:

4 Green unripe firm tomatoes.

1 tbsp roasted groundnuts powdered

4-5 green chillies chopped (depending on how spicy you want it)

1tsp cumene seeds

1tsp sugar

Salt as per taste

1tsp oil.



That’s all! J 



Green Tomato chutney tastes great with anything…Rotis, Parathas,Rice ,Idli, Dosa..

    I tried this today for my husband’s lunchbox (with chapathis). I did not grind them into paste (cut them into thin slits and cooked). He liked it very much. Thanks a lot for the recipe

    @I am so glad he liked it.Next time I shall try without grinding.Thanks

    hi, nice blog, i make this chutney very frequently since my hubby has to have some kind of chutney every day. By the way, i use roasted sesame seed powder instead of peanut powder, try it and see the difference in taste. enjoy blogging

    Can I use green “tomatillas” instead of green tomatoes?

    you can also substitute tomatoes with Bangalore baigan( chow chow).can include fried tur dal (with one drop oil) instead of groundnut.
