Chutney is a known as a family of condiments or sauces in Indian cuisine.
Indian food is rich and aromatic, nostalgic and spicy, saucy and savory, sweet and sour. This makes it hard to eat plain or bland foods. I am a condiment girl at heart. I need a dipping sauce with everything that can be dipped. I think this is because most curries are saucy and most dinners in my life are accompanied with some sort of chutney.
My favorite chutneys include tomato, cilantro, coconut and peanut chutney. Here I am sharing one version of tomato chutney, a very simple one at that.
This recipe calls for canned peeled plum tomatoes. You can definitely opt for fresh vine tomatoes, however I ALWAYS have canned tomatoes in my pantry so most of the time I am making my chutney with canned tomatoes versus fresh.
If your mouth was watering with our Chicken Palau recipe, be sure to add this chutney alongside it.
