When I told my friend that I had made a Ridge gourd peel chutney, she asked me if I have ever tried making one with green tomatoes. Since I hadn’t , asked her for her recipe. There are a variety of ways that it can be made, but trying out the one suggested by her today. Thank you so much Simran Kaul Gangolli for this wonderful recipe. It is absolutely divine!

- 5 garlic cloves
- 7 green chillies

- 5 tbsps grated coconut
- 2 tbsps Ghee/ clarified butter
- 1/2 tsp mustard
- 1/2 tsp Urad dal/Husked black gram dal

Wash and roughly chop the tomatoes and green chillies. . Take a tbsp of ghee in a pan. Drop in the Jeera, chopped green chillies, garlic cloves and the tomatoes in that order.
