Take advantage of the summer's tomato glut and make this pickle with a natural savoury flavour and a bright orange red colour. This cooked pickle is sweet and sour, thick and garlicky with the added crunch of chopped carrots and the aroma of whole spices. It makes a wholesome replacement for market ketchup. Use firm, fresh and ripe tomatoes when they are in season.

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.
