TOMato Kaayi Chutney – Raw Tomato Chutney 

Raw tomatoes are my favourite. We don’t get these often in the market as they are not in demand. But I love them for the sourness.

Raw tomato chutney is a nice tangy, spicy chutney that is nice twist to the regular chutney. It can be served with dosa, idli, rotti , with plain steamed rice or with curd rice. 


1/2 kilo – Raw tomatoes 

4 nos – Green chillies

4 nos – Garlic pods

1 tsp – Fenugreek seeds

Salt to taste

1 tsp – Jaggery

For Tempering 

1 spring – Curry leaf

1 no – Onion, finely chopped

4 tbsp – Oil

1 tsp – Mustard seeds


In a pan heat 3 tbsp oil.

Add fenugreek seeds and let it turn red.

Add garlic, chopped green tomatoes, and saute till the tomatoes sweat and soften.

Cool it down.

Add the cooled down tomatoes, salt, jaggery into a blender and blend it into a coarse paste.

Heat the remaining oil in the pan. Add mustard seeds and let it crackle.

Add curry leaves and let it crisp up. 

Add finely chopped onions and saute till it turns translucent. 

Add the chutney and 1/4 cup water and boil till the chutney thickens. 

Serve it with hot steamed rice and a dollop of ghee.
