    Hi Prathima, I too live in Bangalore. All I did was to ask how much oil to be added. Thanks


    hi birjis and jean, this is tomato PICKLE and not CHUTNEY. They are two different dishes altogether. The procedure that is given by prathima is perfect because in bangalore we do prepare this recipe exactly in this method and it comes out perfect. The shelf life is also good (15 days to a month) if kept in a cool dry place and used with ONLY dry spoon

    No mention of oil in the list of ingredients or how much to use!



    Hi Birjis the tadka is already given in it at the very begining of the procedure so u need to add more oil & mustard & all other seasonings at the begining so please check the recipe properly.


    i guess the chutney is incomplete.. u should give tadhka at the end to enhance the taste.
