Authentic Tomato Khejurer Chaatney from the land of Bengal

Ok. Let’s talk about Bengali Cuisine. When one hears Jhaal (Spicy), Tok (Sour), Nonta (Salty) and Mishty (Sweet) it becomes a memorable experience either being a Bengali or a non Bengali.

Be it a grand wedding at the most upscale locale, or a small gathering at home, a religious function or just about a kitty party, no Bengali Meal is complete without 2 major elements. One the Rosogolla / Misti Doi and the other Sweet Tomato Chaatney (yes , just like how its pronounced)

One of us having grown up in Kolkata has a fondness and a special place in the heart for this Chutney. This is the last but one step, and then the meal could be called fulfilling and complete. The food scene in West Bengal varies between very sweet and mild to extremely spicy but this one dish is a great and well accepted amalgamation of both the flavours.

The tomato Chutney not necessarily is just a mix of tomatoes with spices but many a times has variations like the Tomato Khejur (dates), or Tomato Kishmish (raisins), or Tomato Amsotto (dried mango pulp). Though the common factor in all these is the robust and fleshy tomato. The add-ons give the extra crunch to this pulpy chutney.

Here we have made the simple yet delicious Tomato Chutney which is a must have not just for the Bengalis but all who love food and enjoy experimenting with taste flavor and aroma.

Ingredients required:

  • Vegetable Oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Panch Foron – 1 teaspoon
  • Ripe Tomatoes, chopped  – Big 4, medium 6
  • Dates
  • Salt – 1 pinch
  • Turmeric powder – 1/3 teaspoon
  • Red Chilli Powder
  • Dry red chillies
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Dry roasted Cumin (optional)

This one’s when the classic gets a new favourite twist. Not just for the ‘Whiskey Sour lovers’. Imagine a 12 year old Glenlivet blended with Honey & Ginger. Do try finishing off the Candied Ginger on top 😨😅 Click link on BIO to know more.
