Tomato Chutney Made With Tomato Paste

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Thursday, April 25, 2013 | 4:23 PM

A few weeks ago, I was out of tomatoes so I opened a bottle of Tukas tomato paste and after transferring most of it into a freezable container, I had some left over  paste in the bottle. Thinking that I can make a chutney with it. I added some water to the bottle, covered and gave it a good shake. I got a thick soup like tomato juice in the bottle. I cooked it down and made a chutney with it. It turned out much better than I had expected. Was super easy and my husband asked me to write it all down before I forget all the details. So using that recipe, I made it again for breakfast this morning and I was happy to taste chutney again. Delighted to share this with all of you.


Frying Pan
Measuring Cup and Spoon
Cutting Board


Tukas Tomato Paste - 1/4 cup
Water - 1 1/2 cups
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Asafotida Powder - 1/4 tsp
Red Chillies - 2 
Curry Leaves - a few
Coconut - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 tbsp
Garlic - 2 pods minced
Salt to taste


1. Heat the frying pan with some oil. Add the asafoetida, mustard seeds, curry leaves and methi seeds in it. Add garlic bits. Once the rawness disappears, mix the tomato paste with water and add to the frying pan.

2. Allow the liquid to cook until it starts to thicken and the raw smell goes away. Then add the salt. 
Remove from heat and cool.

3. Add grated fresh coconut to it and blend into a smooth chutney and serve with hot idli's or dosai's, bread etc. 


  1. Wow...chutney looks great and I love those spongy Idlies too!!

  2. Seriously chuten with tomato paste,omg very interesting.. Cant wait to make some.

  3. Looks yummm.

  4. Oh Sri chutney looks so good and the idli in the last picture looks so soft and beautifullll!

  5. Love the bright color, looks very tempting with the idlis..

  6. When you use paste you get a deeper colour and that eye appeal adds to the dish. This seems as you say - super easy. Been some time since I visited the blog.

  7. What a lovely colour of the chutney
