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.
