Desi Indian Tomatoes are the best :

• Desi Tomatoes are better to get the yummy sour taste to the Chutney.

• People who prefer more sourness can add some Tamarind but the intrinsic sourness that comes from ripe Tomatoes has a better taste.

• Ripe Desi Tomatoes are the best. In case you do not get Desi Tomatoes, use Hybrid Tomatoes. But then you have to add some Tamarind.

A few tips for Tomato Sesame Chutney:

• The Chutney tastes different if you let Tomatoes cook into a soft mass. And something else if you just let the raw taste go and then take them off the fire. I personally like the latter, especially when the Chutney is meant to accompany Tiffins.

• It is better to use more Chillies than usual for this Chutney. Because, using Sesame Seed Powder makes it a little bland and less spicy.

• Coriander seeds can be ground into a powder along with the Sesame Seeds or the other way to do it is to set aside the Coriander seeds, make the Chutney with the rest of the ingredients and then finally, after seasoning, add crushed Coriander Seeds. They stand out in the Chutney here and there and make for an interesting taste on the tongue.

• Garlic can be dropped if you don’t like that taste.

• Remember, this Chutney smells a little stale by evening in hot season. It lasts two days if you refrigerate it.

What can be used instead of Sesame Seeds?

• Groundnuts, roasted Flaxseeds, roasted Bengal Gram, Roasted raw Bengal Gram can also be used.
