How To Make A Bilahir Tok-Tomato Chutney in Assamese Style

 

‘Bilahi’ in Assam means tomato and ‘Tok’ means tangy/sour chutney. This sweet n sour dish is so simple to make that it can be made within 10-15 minutes. It is a tangy and sweet recipe, something which is definitely mouth-watering and can perk up a meal. A delicious concoction, it can be used in so many different ways. All you require is season’s freshest tomatoes and a few regular ingredients of your kitchen. The jaggery can be replaced with brown sugar, and if you are diabetic you can, of course, replace jaggery or sugar with your trusted sweetener.

We had ours with khichri for a meal…and it all comes flashing back…the weddings, the Durga Pujas, and of course, my mom’s kitchen and dad’s smile 🙂
