Sweet Tomato chutney
This chutney is made in microwave
Ingredients
4 ripe tomatoes chopped
1 pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp panch phoran ( mixture of fenugreek seed, nigella seed, cumin seed, black mustard seed and fennel seed in equal parts)
1 red dry chilli
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp mustard oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

Method
Take a microwave vessel add in panch phoran and red dry chilli and microwave for 2 minutes. Take 1/2 the panch phoran and 1/2 red dry chilli out to make powder. Now add mustard oil to the rest of the panch phoran and chilli. Microwave for another 2 minutes. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir it. Now microwave for 5 minutes. Keep a check. The sugar liquid should be sticky when touched. If it is still watery then  microwave for some more minutes. Once all the ingredients blends well and the sugar syrup has become sticky then take it out and add in the panch phoran and dry chilli powder and mix well. Have it with Partha or chappati..
