Ever Tried Green Tomato And Walnut Chutney? Here’s A Recipe

While others might merely think of green tomatoes as unripe tomatoes, southerners are familiar with them. What exactly are green tomatoes, what do they taste like, and how are they used? In actuality, these are unripe tomatoes. A different variety exists, namely heirloom tomatoes, which are green when mature. They're extremely wonderful and have their place as well. However, most of the time, when you hear the phrase "green tomatoes," you are thinking of the unripe varieties of regular tomatoes. Despite having a less colourful appearance than their red counterparts, green tomatoes still contain almost the same amounts of essential nutrients. 

Choose firm, smooth-skinned green tomatoes for the greatest health advantages. If they are not quite ripe, keep them in the sun for a few days before putting them in the refrigerator when that happens. When consumed within a day or two, ripe tomatoes have the finest flavour. They help you stay hydrated while offering a variety of vital minerals.

Here is a recipe for green tomato walnut chutney  

In a skillet with 1 teaspoon oil, add 8–10 tiny green tomatoes, 2–3 cloves of garlic, and 7–8 Walnut halves. Pan roast until almost browned. Green chilies, a good amount of coriander, and raw mango slices (you can omit this step if the tomatoes are too sour) should be cooled before adding to a blender. Additionally, if you don't have raw mango, add some lemon juice or tamarind water, a few sprigs of fresh mint, and salt. Blend until a semi-coarse paste forms, then transfer to a bowl. Add some tempering on top (optional). Serve with crackers, lavash, kebabs, idlis, or uttapam. Enjoy! 

Not just green tomatoes, walnuts have been dubbed "brain fuel." The ironic part is that studies have shown regular walnut consumption does indeed enhance brain function. They are incredibly rich in nutrients and simple to incorporate into a diet. They are superior than the majority of other nuts because they are rich in potassium, iron, zinc, and magnesium as well as polyunsaturated fat, vitamins, and minerals. Walnuts are superior to all other dry fruits in every way because they are high in fibre and antioxidants. You can sprinkle them on desserts, include them in salads, or just eat them as a snack.
