For those who can not be in Madrid tasting this unique experinece, we copy the récipe of his tomato chutney, published by “The Guardian”

Tomato chutney

  • vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • 3 tbs chopped onions
  • 250g chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 sugar
  • 1/2 tsp nigella or cumin seeds

 

Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pan, and sauté the chopped ginger and chopped onions until translucent. Add the chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, salt and sugar. Cook the mixture until the tomatoes are melted to form a sauce consistency. Blend the mixture with a hand blender and pass through a fine sieve. In a separate pan sauté the nigella or cumin seeds in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and add to the sauce and mix well.

Enjoy it!!
