Tomato Chutney

tomatoes - 5 ripe and big (sliced)
green chillies - 5 to 6 big (per your taste you can add or remove the chillies)
coriander - a bunch

Seasoning -
asafoetida or hing or inguva - 1/2 tb spoon
cumin seeds - 1/2 tb spoon
mustard seeds - 1/2 tb spoon
fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tb spoon (you can use the powder if seeds are not available)
minapappu or urad dal - 2 tb spoons
salt - per your taste

Method -
Heat oil in a pan. Add the seasoning & green chillies and fry until crisp. Add the tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes turn tender. Stir occassionally. Add the coriander leaves and salt, simmer and cook for 3 more minutes. Turn the stove off and let the mixture cool. Transfer contents into a mixer jar and blend into a rough paste. Do not make a smooth paste lest it becomes a sauce rather than a chutney :)

Garnish with coriander leaves.
