Tomato Chutney

I love tomatoes in any form - stuffed tomato, raw in salads, soup, chutney ... This tomato chutney is a staple in my house. The smoky taste of the tomatoes, coupled with the slightly sharp mustard oil ... it is a dance session for the tastebuds.
2 juicy beefsteak tomatoes
1/4 red onion, chopped fine
1 green chilli, finely chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp mustard oil

Wash the tomatoes and pat dry. Lightly coat the tomatoes with a couple of drops od mustard oil. Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a pan, place the tomatoes, cover and cook on medium low heat till the tomaotes are cooked, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a bowl, add the chopped onion, chilli and salt. Add the cooked tomatoes and using a potato masher, mash to pulp. Add 1/2 tsp mustard oil and mix well. Serve as an accompaniment with Rice / Paratha. Enjoy !
