Tomato Oambal Or Tomato Chutney

Tomato chutney or oambal from Tripura cuisine. A sweet and slightly hot delicious chutney. You can enjoy it with any meal or snacks. Recipe is very simple to make. You don’t need much ingredients to make this chutney.
I have served it with lentil or dal cutlets.

Tripura is one of the North Eastern seven sisters states in India.

Tripuri cuisine is the type of food served in Tripura (situated in northeast India). The Tripuris are essentially nonvegetarians and hence the main courses are mainly prepared using meat, but with the addition of vegetables. Traditional Tripuri cuisine is known as Mui Borok. Tripuri food has a key ingredient called Berma (also called Shidal in Bengali), which is a small, oil-pasted and dry fermented fish. The foods are sometimes considered to be healthy as they are usually prepared without oil.

Ginger Chutney Or Allam Pachadi

Ginger chutney or allam pachadi.
A very aromatic and lip-smacking chutney. Ginger, tamarind, coconut, peanut, jaggery and chilli made this chutney tongue tickling.

This chutney is from Andhra cuisine. Allam means ginger. In authentic recipe coconut and peanut not usually used. But I love the nutty taste of dry roasted peanut and the sweetness and flavour of fresh coconut in chutney. So I have used both. You can use 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon coriander seeds with chana dal, udad dal and cumin if you like the flavour. I didn’t.

Sending this post to Facebook group Recipe Swap Challenge Initiated by Jolly
And Vidya.
We have to recreate a recipe from a fellow blogger’s blog.
This month my partner is Sandhya Ramakrishnan who blog at My Cooking Journey.
I love this ginger chutney on her blog. I have made little changes according to my taste.

Chutney is very easy to make. You can skip tempering at the end because chutney is also delicious without tempering. I have used coconut and peanut according to my taste. You can omit these if you want or if you don’t have these. I have used readymade tamarind paste but if you don’t have paste, soak 1 tablespoon tamarind in 1/4 cup warm water and strain the pulp when cool.

Recipe

Ginger – 1/4 cup, peeled and chopped in small pieces

Chana dal or Bengal gram – 1 tablespoon

Used dal or split black gram – 1 teaspoon

Fresh coconut – 2 tablespoon, chopped in small pieces, optional

Peanut – 2 tablespoon

Cumin seed – 1/2 teaspoon

Dry red chilli – 1 – 2 or to taste

Methi or fenugreek seeds – 1/2 teaspoon

Jaggery powder – 1 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Tamarind paste – 2 tablespoon

Cumin powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Coriander powder – 1/4 teaspoon

Oil – 2 teaspoon

Water – 4 tablespoon

For tempering

Mustard seeds – 1/4 teaspoon

Curry leaves – 8 – 10

Oil – 1 teaspoon

Method

1. Dry roast the peanut. Let it cool down, peel and keep aside.

2. Heat 2 teaspoon oil in a pan.
Add chana dal, udad dal, dry red chilli, cumin seeds and methi or fenugreek seeds.

3. Fry until lentils become brown.
Add ginger pieces, coconut pieces and dry roasted and peeled peanut.

4. Mix and immediatly switch off the heat. Don’t fry the ginger too much, overcooking may be make the ginger bitter.

5. Let the mixture cool down completely.

6. Grind the mixture with tamarind paste, salt, cumin powder, coriander powder, jaggery and water. Don’t add too much water. Chutney should be thick consistency.

7. Take out the chutney in a bowl. Taste and adjust salt, jaggery and tamarind if required.

8. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small pan.Add 1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds or rai and curry leaves. You can also add 1 dry red chilli. My chutney is already hot with 2 red chilli in the ground mixture so I didn’t.

8. When the seeds starts to splutter add the tempering in the chutney.
Serve with idli, dosa or serve as dip with any snack.

Notes

1. Use chilli according to your spice tolerance. If you want mildly spicy chutney, use only one red chilli.

2. Lemon juice or dry mango powder can be used instead of tamarind.
