    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.

    Really good, although I couldn't find any tamarind extract. Used a little cumin instead and it still turned out good.  -  03 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Make this chutney last night for Indian dinner party to serve with pakora recipe that I also found on this site. I didn´t have tamarind so I used cumin and garam masala to season. It made quite a bit for what I needed (as a dipping sauce) so next time I will half the recipe.  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
