When I saw the “Vegan Ventures” announcement, my first thought was that this shouldn’t be too difficult for a vegetarian Indian. Then I realized that zeroing in on a recipe to send in wasn’t going to be all that easy. Big decisions had to be made. Should it be from my cooking repertoire or should I adapt a non-vegan recipe? And then the big question, which one?
I finally decided on a recipe I had evolved to get my daughter to eat tomatoes. She calls it “Amma’s (mother’s) tomato chutney”. She still doesn’t really like tomatoes, not even ketchup, but this particular chutney is a favourite with us all. It should be easy to make as most kitchens would usually have onions and tomatoes. So here goes.
