Stuck with a relatively bland food? Add zing to it by making this spicy and tangy tomato ginger chutney. It is so versatile, you could pair this chutney up with sandwiches, dal rice, chapatis and even as salad dressings (mixed with a bit of water). It’s healthy too, tomatoes bringing in a healthy dose of lycopene and ginger with its active ingredient gingerol. Need I say more?
