This chutney is my favourite accompaniment for pilau dishes! You can adjust it to be extra hot or very mild, go according to your taste buds. :)

2 tbsp
tomato paste/puree
3-4 tbsp
green chillies, chopped
1/2 tsp
garlic paste
2 tbsp
chopped coriander stems
chopped onion
1/4 tsp
turmeric powder
1-2 tsp
red chilli powder
salt to taste
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp
1/4 tsp
rai/mustard seeds

Roughly chop the tomatoes with their skins, then put them in the blender. Add the chopped onion, green chillies and coriander stems Blend until smooth (you can add a bit of water if needed.

Heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds then add the garlic paste, followed by the tomato paste/puree, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Stir together for a minute then add the blended tomato mixture. Sprinkle some salt and let these cook and simmer down on gentle heat until the chutney is thick and begins to release some of the oil on the sides.

Taste and adjust spiciness according to your taste. When it's about done, add the lemon juice, give it a final stir and switch off.
