Spicy Indian green tomatoes

Serves 2 as a main course, or 4 as a side dish. Fantastic with mackerel for a twist on the usual Indian curries. Great as a vegetarian main meal or as a side with a curry. Try cold as a salad too!  So versatile and great for using up all those green tomatoes if the summer ends too quickly.

450g  Green Tomatoes
2 Green Chillis, seeded and chopped
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
qtr cup Oil for frying
half tsp Cumin or Fenugreek seeds
half tsp Cumin Seeds
1 x tsp Chilli powder
2 x tsp Ground Coriander
half tsp Tumeric
half tsp Lemon Juice
Salt and sugar to taste

Wash and quarter the tomatoes
Heat the oil and add Cumin and fenugreek if using, until they crackle
Add tomatoes and green chillis and cook for 2 mins
Add everything else (except the garlic), stir, cover and cook for 6 mins
Uncover, and add the garlic. Turn up the heat and stir fry for 2-3 mins
(The separating oil will now blend together with the juices)

The best tasting green tomatoes ever. It also freezes well.
