I LOVE this recipe. I made a big batch last year and canned some. I coveted those jars all winter saving them for just the right occasions. I opened the last one in July and have been willing my tomatoes to ripen ever since just so that I can make more.
Every time I make it the recipe evolves just a little bit more. The inspiration comes from Julie Sahni's Savoring India. That book, I savor as much as this recipe.
- 4 ripe red tomatoes, chopped
- 1 lg bell pepper, sliced in very thin julienned strips
- 1 small onion, sliced in very thin julienned strips
- 3 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tsp grated lemon rind
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp Vindaloo
- Hot Chili or Tabasco style sauce to taste.
Broil Onion and pepper, until blackened. Saute tomato and onion an pepper in olive oil. After 5 minutes add the remaining ingredients. Continue to saute until the juices have evaporated. Serve warm with fresh bread or as a condiment. May be stored in the refrigerator.

Thank you so much. I started making jams, chutney and curds for christmas alongside ginger ale last year, and people keep asking what I'm making this year. So I'm busy looking for inspiration now.
