This tomato achaar, a 2016 Good Food Awards winner, is a relish made with locally-grown tomatoes, tamarind, a blend of Indian spices, red chili powder, unrefined cane sugar and sesame oil. It has a spicy, sour, savory and sweet kick - the best of all worlds!
While traditionally eaten with rice or curry, we love incorporating this condiment with unconventional pairings. Try whisking into aioli and adding to a BLT in lieu of tomatoes; bring the heat to a vibrant beef stew; or do brunch right by adding a spoonful to your Bloody Mary.
