Tamatillo Chutney

The original recipe calls for green tomatoes. But I think most of the home cooks I know, have substituted tomatillo in green tomatoes recipes just to check it out. I did the same.

5-6 tomatilloes, roughly chopped to make 2 cups
1 small red onion, peeled & roughly chopped to make 1/2 cup
2 tbsp white sesame seeds
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup cilantro/coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts
3-4 green chilies (or per heat level tolerance)
1 tbsp jaggery
salt to taste
1 cup plain yogurt (fat free ok)

1. Heat oil in a saucepan. Add onions & green chilies and saute till the raw smell disappears.
2. Now add sesame seeds, cilantro and tomatollos. And saute till the tamatillos are mushy.
3. Let the mixture cool down completely.
4. Grind along with salt, jaggery and 1 cup yogurt.

Note -
1. The original recipe asks for green tomatoes. I substituted the tomatillos.
2. I ground the yogurt along with the remaining ingredients. But you can grind the chutney without adding yogurt and then later just whisk the yogurt in.
