Spicy Tomato Jam Recipe Card


Hindi: tamatar
Relish a salad platter of thinly sliced tomatoes, with chunks of mozzarella, a drizzle of olive oil, sliced black olives and basil leaves. Arrange in concentric circles on a nice white plate. The word relish is just perfect here. And not just salads, for all those rich and good-looking Indian preps, the very famous onion-tomato masala is a must! Then, there are soups, beverages (call for the Bloody Mary!), snacks and even desserts made of these plump red things. Even the green ones are in use today. Must say, terrific tomatoes!

Ingredients for Spicy Tomato Jam Recipe

  • Tomatoes 8 medium

  • Sugar 10 tablespoons

  • White vinegar 1/2 cup

  • Salt 1/2 tablespoon

  • Garlic 2 cloves

  • Ginger 1 inch

  • Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon

  • Onion seeds (kalonji) 1/2 teaspoon

  • Red chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon


Step 1

Chop tomatoes finely.

Step 2

Heat a deep non-stick pan and add tomatoes. Add sugar and ½ cup white vinegar, mix and cook.

Step 3

Add salt and mix. Finely chop garlic and add. Finely slice ginger and add.

Step 4

Add cumin seeds, onion seeds and red chilli powder and mix well. Cook till most of the moisture evaporates, sugar syrup thickens and tomatoes get cooked.

Step 5

Heat sufficient water in a large and deep pan. Keep a silicon ring in it and place glass bottles, in which you want to store the jam, in it and let the water simmer for some time. This is one way you sterilise the bottles.

Step 6

Take the bottles out of the water but do not wipe them. Keep them in hot oven to dry.

Step 7

To test if the jam is ready, put a ladle of jam on a plate and let it cool. Tilt the plate, if the jam does not run, the jam is ready.

Step 8

Pour into sterilized jar while still hot but do not fill till the top. Close with lid and store to serve as and when required.
