Tomato Chawtny (chutney) is a simple, rustic, tasty accompaniment from Naga cuisine. It is commonly served with rice and meat.

Nagaland is a small state in the North-eastern part of India. It is the home to 16 tribes which are well settled in that region. Each region has its own culture and tradition, thus the cuisine too varies. It is mainly non-vegetarian which they consume on a daily basis. Along with a meat dish, boiled veggies and chutney is usually prepared along with rice. The food is spicy, Nagas are known to grown the hottest chilli, bhut jholokia.

The state dish is a smoked pork cooked with fermented soya bean.

The Shhhh Secretly Cooking group is visiting Nagaland and I am happy to have Seema of www.mildlyindian.com as my partner. Seema is a good friend and a talented blogger. Seema gave me tomato and salt as the secret ingredients and I came upon this tomato chutney (pronounced as chawtny), it is such a simple one but absolutely delicious. You can make it ten minutes with easily available ingredients.Without much ado, let me take you to the recipe of this chutney. I served it with phulka and also with rice and rasam.
