Tomato Methi Chutney


tomato methi chutney
This is a unique tomato chutney recipe that takes inspiration from Priya Shiva's Thankkali Thoku. Priya is a talented blogger from south India. The moment I checked the recipe, I was bowled over by it.

Simple, easy, and yummy, bursting with flavors of roasted methi seeds (fenugreek powder), this tomato chutney is sure going to be your go-to recipe for chutneys when you are short on time and need a tantalizing dip to satiate your cravings.

You can enjoy this chutney of tomatoes with idli, dosa, vada, rice, and even parantha.
Before sharing the recipe, I would like to say that I have tried making tomato-onion chutney the same way. It tastes equally good. Get the recipe here.

So without further ado, let's come back to the recipe, with little modifications here and there.

Ingredients
3 tomatoes
1 tsp- oil
1/4 tsp- roasted methi dana powder
2 pinches- hing (asafetida)
red chilly powder/ green chillies
1/2 tsp- mustard seeds (kali sarson)

Procedure

  1. Boil whole tomatoes for 5 minutes so that they become soft. Meanwhile, take a pan, and dry roast methi dana. When the aroma of roasted methi fills your kitchen, turn off the flame. Allow it to cool. Upon cooling, grind it to powder. Keep aside. I made this powder a day before.
  2. Take a pan.
  3. Add oil.
  4. Next add mustard seeds and hing.
  5. Let them splutter.
  6. Now add tomatoes. If you are using green chilly, add now.
  7. Cook & cover for 5 minutes.
  8. Add salt and chilly powder.
  9. Saute well until tomato becomes a paste.
  10. Sprinkle roasted methi powder.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
