Naga Tomato Chutney - Nagaland Cuisine

In our Indian food Odyssey we are in Nagaland today,another North eastern state of India.The state is mostly mountainous and Mount Saramath is the highest peak situated in Nagaland.
When coming to the cuisine part mostly its non-veg,finding out a vegetarian recipe is very difficult.
A typical naga meal consists of rice,meat,boiled veggies and chutney.The Naga chutney varieties  tend to be very spicy as they use lot of chillies to accompany a bland dish.
Today's recipe is one such simple chutney which is used as an accompaniment and this chuney doesn't need any oil or seasoning.Its simply made by boiling the tomatoes along with chilly and garlic,ginger and mash it.Off to the recipe.....................................
