Aamsotto Tomato Chutney

This time my parents sent me few bars of aamsotto through courier. In Bengal aamsotto chutney is  a very famous chutney. It is a dried mango bar. It reminded me of my childhood. During summers , I used to steal aamsotto from the kitchen in the afternoon when my mom used to take her afternoon nap.

Ingredients :

1. Aamsotto bar- 1/2
2. Tomato- 1
3. Sugar- 2 tbs
4. Oil- 2 tbs
5. Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
6. Jeera (cumin seeds)- 1/2 tsp
7. Salt- one pinch
8. Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp

Procedure :

Cut the aamsotto into small cubes and keep them aside. Chop the tomato into small pieces. Now heat oil in a kadhayi and add jeera , mustard. When they will start spluttering , add salt , turmeric and tomato. Add the sugar and cover the kadhayi. Gradually tomato will leave water. After 5 minutes add the aamsotto pieces and half a glass of water. Cover and cook over low flame. If you want you can mash the aamsottos a little , this will add some thickness to the gravy. After 4 to 5 minutes of cooking check the sweetness of the chutney and remove it from the gas.
