Chutney originated in India. Traditionally, they were spicy rather than sweet, which is widespread today.

    Step 1

    In 1Tbsp oil, sauté ginger-garlic paste for about 15 seconds on a med-low heat. I used chopped ginger & garlic but it doesn't matter..

    Step 2

    Add onions and flakes; sauté until onions turn a translucent pink.

    Step 3

    Chop tomato and add to the onions

    Once tomatoes soften, add the tomato paste.

    Step 5

    Sauté for about 5 mins to cook the paste

    Add the turmeric and gharam masala and sauté for a few seconds. Turn off heat and chill completely.

    Step 7

    In a blender add the tomato mix and chilies. Add more chilies if you want it hotter!
