INDIAN 5-SPICE TOMATO RELISH

Ingredients

4-5 medium sized ripe red tomatoes (chopped)
1 shallot (small onion), finely chopped
¼ tsp garlic paste
¼ tsp of ginger paste
1 tsp panch phoran (5-spice)
1 big dry red chilli, split in two or three pieces
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ to ¾ tsp red chilli powder (adjust the heat)
1½-2 tsp granulated sugar
½ tsp dry mango powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Salt to taste

Preparation

1
Heat oil in a pan, remove it from the heat and carefully add the dry red chilli.
2
Put the pan again on heat and add a generous pinch of sugar and let it caramelise and then add the panch phoran.
3
Once it starts crackling, immediately add the onions. Sauté them and when they turn translucent, add the ginger and garlic paste along with a dash of water.
4
Fry till the ginger-garlic starts to turn golden (may be for half a minute or so).
5
Add the tomatoes and stir them on high heat for about a minute and then lower the heat and let them simmer till they become mushy (about 15 minutes)
6
Start seasoning the tomatoes.
7
Add the salt, sugar, turmeric and chilli powder along with the dry mango powder.
8
Stir well and taste them at this stage and adjust the seasonings.
9
Cook them on high heat for a minute or till the liquid in the tomatoes is reduced.
10
Remove the contents in a serving bowl.
11
Serve this hot or cool; I prefer to serve it at room temperature.
