This is a delicious, robust tomato condiment that can accompany grilled foods, curry, or as a mix-in for pasta or a baked potato topping. Try it in the summer with garden-fresh tomatoes - outstanding!

I loved it, Mr. Womderful loved it, Precious MIracle (daughter) loved it - only changes I made - added garlic (cuz I just have to have garlic) and I used the stick blender on the tomato simply because I do not like chucky tomato. Flavors were fabulous and will make it again and again. Served with papadum and life was wonderful
