Klunker's tomato chutney

Klunker's tomato chutney

I was asked by several people, if I would post my recipe for tomato chutney.  I hadn't thought much about posting it for some reason.  I don't really know why either, it tastes amazing and is easy to make.
I love this chutney on dosa, on my brown rice, on toast.....The list goes on and on.  It is just a great accompaniment to many dishes.
I use cherry tomatoes in this recipe.  I love how they taste, I love how they add just the right tang also.  BUT, if you don't want to use them, you can use whatever kind you have/want.  I have used the small orange tomatoes, and that really gave it a great flavor too.


1 lb. cherry tomatoes, washed
1/2 red onion, chopped small
1/3 cup vinegar (I used brown rice vinegar, but you can use just plain or apple cider)
1/3 cup brown rice syrup (or your choice of sweetener)
2 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 tsp. garam masala
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. mustard powder
1/2-1 tsp. red pepper flakes

In a large saute pan, with a lid, add your onion.  Put over medium heat.  Saute for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, add the garlic and ginger.  Stir and saute another 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes, and stir.  Add the vinegar and sweetener of choice also.  Stir well.

Add the spices

Make sure to stir well, and bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Stir every once in a while. (about 10 minutes or so)

Once it comes to a boil, stir one more time, and reduce the heat to low.  Cover your pan, and walk away.  You want to simmer for an hour total.  Stirring every 10 minutes or so.  If the liquid is burning off too fast, add a little water.  You don't want to burn this.  Make sure your flame is on low.

About half way through, you want to remove the lid and let it finish without a lid.  This will evaporate the liquid (reduce) and it will get thick.
When you are done, you are left with a thick, chunky, delicious chutney.  You can blend it up a bit if you want a smoother chutney, but I like mine chunky.  
This really goes well served with potato patties or freshly made dosa.  This is my second chutney recipe.  You can find the recipe for my mango chutney here.

I hope you give this a try, and enjoy as much as I do.

I like to store my chutney in the fridge, in an air tight container.  :)
