  • 2 big juicy tomatoes- chopped
  • 4 juicy plums- seeded and chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped finely, if you have a kid at home than you can take the seeds out or just could put a slit length wise
  • 4 tbsp of grated fresh root ginger
  • â½ tsp lemon zest
  • a pinch of salt (black salt tastes even better)
  • 6-7 tbsp of soft brown sugar / half cup of jaggery, depending on how sweet you want it to be. i used half cup of jaggery plus 2 tbsp of soft brown sugar. it gives a caramelised taste to it. if you do not have both of them in your pantry, don’t worry. you can use normal white sugar by all means.
  • 1 tsp of plain vinegar (optional)
  • a pinch of freshly grounded black pepper
  • a pinch of mustard seeds (optional). well, it is a must at my mum’s and in laws place but i haven’t used any.
