What happens when you add tomatoes and ginger to an already wonderful tamarind sauce?
Tomato, Tamarind & Ginger Chutney
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp jarred tamarind paste (not the solid-pack tamarind)
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
1/2 tsp grated fresh (or jarred) ginger
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garam masala
salt to taste
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil. Boil, uncovered, 10 mins (until slightly thickened). Add tomatoes and ginger, reduce heat to medium and continue to simmer for 5-10 mins, or until tomatoes have cooked down and mixture is thick. Remove from heat, stir in spices. Taste and add salt. Let cool to room temp before using.
I won’t tell you what to serve this with because, really, I can’t think of anything not to serve it with.
