Tomato Chutney II
I was not expecting this taste. Very unique and very delicious. I did not have fresh cilantro so I used dry. My husband liked it but I'm not sure he could wrap his mind around sweet tomatoes, so I would use less sugar next time. Definitely worth trying.

Authentic and Easy Shrimp Curry
Delicious... A true Indian dish. 1st time I have made Indian at home and been so satisfied. I followed the recipe as exact as I wanted to, meaning, I did not put a 1/4 cup oil, doesn't need it. A tbsp was good enough. May not end up with as much sauce at the end, sadly, but I would rather the less oil. Mostly when you want to lick out the bowl at the end of the meal. And I did not have curry leaves or cilantro, but I don't know how necessary it would have been, there is so much sinful flavor. I also used the Garam Masala recipe mix from this site. You will not be disappointed with this recipe. All must try it and make it their new favorite! Thank you for bringing spice to my table!!
