TAMATE JI MITHI KHATAIRN / SWEET TOMATO PICKLE


Sweet Tomato chutney made in a quick and easy way using a pressure cooker. You can make it fresh in small quantities as and when required as it hardly takes 10 minutes from start to finish. You can serve it with parathas, mathis or puris.


 Ingredients: 
Tomatoes .... 3-4 (cut into big chunks)
 Demerara Sugar .......... 1/2 cup
Apple cider vinegar .... 1/4 cup
 Green cardamoms ... 4
 Cinnamon ............. 1 inch piece
Bay leaves ........... 1
 Black cardamom ... 1
 Kummel seeds or shahi jeera .. 1/2 tsp
Kalonji / onion seeds ... 1/8 tsp
Dry red chillies ............. 2-3
Salt ................. 1/8 tsp
Oil .................. 1 tbsp


 Method: 
1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the whole spices.
 2. Reduce the flame and add all the remaining ingredients.
3. Close the pressure cooker.
4. After one whistle (when the pressure is full) reduce the flame and simmer for 5 minutes.
 5. Allow it to cool. Fill in the sterilized jar.

 Yield - about 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups
 Note: If you want the colour to remain clear and lighter use normal sugar. I like using demerara sugar.
