Guaranteed to make you lick your fingers delightfully, this Tomato Basil Chutney is flavoured with a peppy masala of spices and dals.

The masala not only gives a nice flavour and aroma but also a rich mouth-feel. Apart from the masala, the tomato and basil chutney also includes a bit of tamarind for tang and jaggery for sweetness.

Truly a multi-faceted chutney, it goes very well with starters like tikkis . You can make a batch and store it in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container.

If you feel the chutney is very thick, you can adjust the consistency by adding a little water.
