A tomato relish cooked with five spices

Hari says

This is my Punjabi tomato relish which I like to keep in the fridge to have with meaty snacks such as Lamb Kebabs or Kofta Bites. I call it punjabi because it uses some classic North Indian spices such as Kasoori Methi or fenugreek leaf and Kashmiri chillies.

It is so delicious as a dip but what makes this really special is that it takes less the five minutes to put together.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 1 fresh tomato, roughly chopped
  • handful of coriander, roughly chopped
  • 3cm fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp Kashmiri chilli powder, (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp kalonji seeds
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp fenugreek leaves


  1. Place tomato, coriander, ginger into a blender and blitz to a pulp.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy pan and add all the spices until they sizzle & become fragrant. This should only take a minute.
  3. Pour the pulp into the pan and heat through for a minute. Pour into a serving dish and leave to cool before serving. Store in a sealed jar and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
