This is a jam to be served with biriyani,or any
type of rice . After I innovated and tasted this
recipe only ,I thought it could be served with
even samosas, or used as a spread for wraps
I used to make this jam with tomatoes
alone,but today I wanted to make something
So started with mint,ginger,and jaggery
( vellam) .
You could use brown sugar,country
sugar,or even sugar . Believe me your tastebuds
will have a feast.Awesome taste!
The ingredients are suited best for digestion!
To the recipe now
4-5 tomatoes blanched,skin removed
A handful of mint leaves
2 -3 inch piece ginger
3/4 -1 cup vellam/ jaggery
2-3 dates chopped
1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1/4 tsp cardamon powder
1 tbsp ghee/butter
Salt to taste
First grind the blanched tomatoes,ginger and
mint to a paste.
Heat ghee in a pan,add cashews,dates.
Sauté till cashews are light brown.
Add the paste with the rest of the ingredients,
and cook till thick .
This can be stored for a few days .Can be stored
in the fridge for more than a week.
