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.

Ingredients

Method
  1. Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water. Peel the skin and cut each into 2 halves. Squeeze out the juice and seeds. Keep the tomato flesh and juice aside separately.
  2. Strain the tomato juice discard the seeds. Add the sugar to the tomato juice and leave aside for ½ hour.

  5. Cook for about 40 to 45 minutes until the mixture has reduced to less than half its original quantity and the syrup is of one string consistency.
  6. Remove from the fire and cool completely. Add the acetic acid, nigella seeds, chilli powder, nutmeg, mace, almonds and salt and mix well.
  7. Bottle in a sterilised glass jar and store refrigerated for upto 1 year.
