This zesty chutney is beaming with the balanced notes of effective but common spices like red chillies and mustard. Tomatoes team up well with onions and garlic to give a nice taste and pulpy mouth-feel.

The sweetness imparted by sugar is obvious in this unique chutney, but restrained enough to accentuate the tangy and spicy flavours.

Vinegar acts as a preservative and extends the shelf-life of the Sweet and Sour Tomato Chutney, while a squeeze of lemon imparts an invigorating sourness to it.

I was anyways bored of making regular mango and chilli pickles and now I’ve found a treasure for my pickles collection which I can make and enjoy at any time of the year.
