  • 10 Long brinjals
  • 1 Tomatoes
  • 10 Green chillies
  • 5 flakes Tamarind
  • Salt as per taste
  • Handful Coriander Chopped
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 3 Garlic cloves


  • Take brinjals and cut into ½ inch rounds.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Fry green chillies and keep aside.
  • Fry brinjals in the same oil till soft but not mushy. Keep aside.
  • In the same pan, fry the tomatoes till soft. Add some salt and close the lid.
  • Before switching off, add chopped coriander and cook for 5 min and turn off the lid.Cool all the ingredients.
  • In a blender jar, take tamarind flakes, green chillies, cumin, garlic cloves, salt.
  • Grind together till the ingredients are blended well.
  • To this, add the tomatoes and blend again till soft.
  • Now add the brinjals and chopped coriander and blend.
  • Do not grind too much. We do not want the brinjals to become a smooth paste. Coarsely grind the brinjals.
  • Transfer the contents to a serving bowl.
  • Temper this vankaya tomato chutney if you want to. This vankaya tomato chutney tastes great without tempering too.


*Do not make into a smooth paste. The chutney should neither be too smooth nor too coarse. Use the pulse button to grind once you add brinjals.
** The number of chillies can be increased or reduced as per your taste.
