This tangy tomato chutney is richly flavoured with panch phoran, a blend of equal parts of mustard seeds, kalonji, cumin seeds, saunf and fenugreek seeds, which is commonly used in Bengali cuisine. While ginger and green chillies add spice to the Bengali Tomato Chutney, raisins and a spoon of sugar balance the tartness of tomatoes, making the chutney very pleasant to the palate.

Flavorful sweet and tangy bengali tomato chutney. The aroma of the paanch phoron used in this recipe is just amazing. Sweet raisins also gives a sweet touch to the dish.
