Tomato Chutney

Tomato Chutney a Bengali style spicy sweet and sour chutney tempered with paanch phoran.There were many versions of this chutney from many bloggers but somehow I like this chunky and spicy one from Spice Chronicles of Rinku Bhattacharya.I looked for the Bengali name of tomatoes but could not find one.There was one post with the name Tematar chutney but as I was not sure about it I went with the English name only.

The chutney stayed well for a week in refrigerator and tasted awesome with rice and any side dish.This is very simple and easy recipe and we all loved it.
