Sweet Tomato Relish

Sweet Tomato Relish

If there was a reason to go out for Sunday breakfast it was for the taste of the Sweet Tomato Relish at our local bakery.  So I decided it was high time I made a homemade equivalent! After a couple of attempts my family have declared this the best!

I serve this alongside toast, plant-powered bacon and some sliced shiitake mushrooms (stir-fried in olive oil, salt, pepper finished off with a dash of lemon juice) It’s just as delicious pilled onto a vegan burger!

  1. Let me share a recipe who likes hot curries.

    Lady’s finger-red chilly curry (hot)

    1. Lady’s finger cut in 4 to 5 cms. long: 12 nos.

    2. Kashmiri red chilly:
    2 to 3 tea spoon or 1 to 2 tea spoons if it is normal red chilly.

    3. Asfoetida: 1 tea spoon.

    4. Water: 1/4 – 1/2 cup.

    5. Cooking oil: 2 tea spoons.

    6. Mustard: 1 tea spoon.


    In a frying pan heat the oil and put mustard.

    Once the cracking is over, add the lady’s finger cuts and saute for few minutes in sim flame.

    Then add up chilly powder and asfoetida powder and salt and saute again for 2 minutes.

    Add water to it and keep it in the flame until lady’s finger is cooked by keeping the lid of the pan.

    It is ready to use with bread, rice or similar items.
