The Secret Ingredients & The challenge

So for this month’s challenge for the state of Nagaland I was paired with Aruna SarasChandra from Vasusvegkitchen. Do check her blog for some delicious and healthy recipes. So, Aruna gave me Red chilly and Tomato as the secret Ingredient. I requested her to change it to green as I could not get the Red ones. I prepared this No Oil Tomato Chutney from Nagaland. I gave her Tamarind and Red chilly and she created this delicious Nagaland Pumpkin Oambal.


No Oil Tomato Chutney

This Tomato chutney is made using without oil. Yes you heard me right, not even a single drop of oil. It is fuss free and a quick chutney and requires very little baby sitting. All you do is add the ingredients along with the water and let it cook. Once the water is all evaporated crush it with a mortar and pestle and you are done. The real flavours in this chutney comes from all the ingredients added.

I was just drooling after I made this. Immediately after clicking a few pics, I applied this chutney as a spread on a bread slice and enjoyed it to the fullest. This Tomato chutney goes well as a side or as a spread to your roti’s. I have taken the recipe from here.
