About this recipe:This is an Indian red tomato chutney - Tamatar Chatni -which has heaps of flavour. The lengthy time to make this is due to the fact that it should stand and cool for a long while before it is served. It's a good idea to make this a day or two in advance.
In a frying pan, cook onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Stir in garlic, and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, and cover; continue cooking until tomatoes are soft and begin to break down. Season with chilli powder, tamarind and salt.
Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
