Tomato Chili Jelly - Totally yummy!

Every year very diligently I grow tomatoes in my little garden patch and that is a thing of pride for me. This year too I've had a nice crop of tomatoes and been enjoying them. Btw tomato happens to be my favourite veggies. Even as a kid I would love to nibble on tomatoes with a bit of salt and pepper on the side.Its no different now! My mom too apparently spent her afternoons in my Dida's (grandma) kitchen garden relishing juicy tomatoes when she was a little girl!! That was way many many memories.

Well so coming back to my love my tomatoes I made this wonderful jelly at home the other day. The recipe has roughly been adapted from a recipe book that I have with a bit of my twists of course. So all you tomato lovers this recipe is surely for keeps. It is so easy and the jelly turns out awesome. You could pair it up with anything that you fancy. I made a cheese and jelly sandwich which tasted heavenly. Presenting my Tomato Chili Jelly recipe..


Tomatoes - 6 medium size diced evenly

Bell pepper - 1 large - diced

Chili flakes - 1 tbsp - can adjust acc to taste

Onion - 1 medium diced

Olive oil - 1 tsp

Apple cider vinegar - 1 cup

Brown sugar - 1/2 cup 

Salt - a pinch


In a pan heat the olive oil , saute the diced onion until translucent. Add the diced tomatoes , bell pepper and the red chili flakes. Next tip in the apple cider vinegar , brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix well and let the mixture cook till it becomes thick and gooey.

 Remove from heat and let the jelly cool. Store in an airtight container. This can be stored for upto 3 months in the refrigerator.

 Well I couldn't wait to taste the jelly so I made myself this super delicious sandwich with some cheese slices. The saltiness from the cheese along with the sweet tangy jelly was a great combination I must say.
