Tamil Nadu's favourite relish in a jar!
Inspired by 'thakkali thokku' or tomato chutney made in many homes across the South of India, we bring you Black Garlic + Tomato Thokku.
We love the bold flavour of tomatoes cooked down for hours with curry leaves, chillies, jaggery and tamarind to a tart sour jam. But we wanted to intensify that pucker and tang and really bring out the south Indian flavours of a thokku- and black garlic was fitting in more ways than we thought!
When garlic is caramelised through a slow ageing process under a regulated temperature and humidity, the enzymes that give fresh garlic its sharpness break down. A pungent spicy bulb of garlic transforms into a mellow, molasses-like dark sticky jam that has a delicate but intensely rich taste of garlic with hints of coffee and tamarind flavour.
With its mellow garlicky taste, almost tamarind-like notes with hints of coffee, black garlic enhances the tart, tangy, spicy, sweet flavours of a thokku with a delicious umami!
Eat with toast, parathas and dosa. Enjoy as a dip, as part of a cheese platter or as a salsa. Use it as a substitute for tomatoes when cooking to add a delicious flavour!
