Hello hello hello!
It was all bright and shiny yesterday! However, it’s not bright anymore. It’s raining today!
But let’s keep our spirits high and hope that the days would be warm and sunny again.
For me, this shiny bright day demanded for some bright and vibrant food.
I asked myself, “How about some old authentic food?” And the answer was YES! So it was a day to savour some old fashioned food.
Can you believe it? But that’s true. Nothing fancy, just a plain simple meal.
I declared at home — it’s going to be a light meal day! So, a simple fresh Chutney it was! Shall I call it a Chutney Wednesday? Yeah, why not?:)
This sounds Chutneylicious — at least to me.

Sometimes the simple food is the best. This chutney is my all time favorite among the simple foods. And this is also a perfect dish to make on those occupied days when you are damn busy.
Generally, I keep this chutney in my refrigerator. I simply spread this chutney on the regular bread whenever I feel like savoring this tangy goodness. YUM!
Addition of brown sugar to this chutney is my personal favorite, so I have added brown sugar. But you can use regular sugar, honey or whatever sweetener you prefer.
This chutney would not come out perfect without any sweetener, so this a MUST.
This is sweet, a bit sour-tangy, and full of deliciousness. And it would surely add a zing to your regular boring meal. A perfect dip for those spicy lip-smacking snacks.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan. Add the mustard seeds. When they start to crackle, add chopped garlic and onions and saute for 3-4 minutes. Now add tomatoes and cook for about 1 minute. Add red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, salt, and sugar. Mix well, and let it cook on low heat for about 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent chutney sticking to the bottom. Remove from heat, when the chutney pulpy and soft.
Let it cool completely. Transfer into an airtight glass jar. Refrigerate and uses up to 3-5 days.
