Tomato chutney

U can make n number of gravies,chutneys n pickles using tomatoes. My mom makes tomato chutney very well. But the only problem while growing was my bro who hates  tomatoes all in all. Cos of that my mom would not make this chutney often. The same happened to me after my marriage as well. My H also hates tomato or tangy related items. So i had to cook acc to our needs. But this time i had plenty of well riped tomatoes left ,generally I would go for tomato jam as it's my favvvvvv.. then the idea of making this chutney triggered my curiosity even better..So ,after a very  long time (almost 1/4 a decade) this chutney was made and totally enjoyyyed by ME !!!!! yipee..
This goes well with all tiffin items...   :)

Tomato -- 3 nos.
