Tomato Chutney is a household favourite in Assam and West Bengal. Anyone who has grown up there surely knows the taste of that amazing chutney that is served with Saraswati Puja Bhog. This chutney is the exact taste of that but with nutritional benefits of Prunes. I can go on and on about Prunes and its health benefits. Prunes are in that category of wonder food that gives you everything-fibre, potassium, copper and Vitamin K. This chutney can be served with snacks and it will work wonders as a sandwich spread as well.

Preparation time 5 minutes

Cooking time 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup prunes

3 tablespoon apple juice

Salt as per taste

1/2 cup tinned tomatoes

1 tablespoon garam masala

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder

1 teaspoon chilli powder or as per taste (optional)

1/2 cup brown sugar

In a grinder or juicer puree the prunes along with the apple juice. Heat the oil with the panch phoron.

Let it cool and refrigerate in an air tight clean glass bottle or Mason jar.
