This fermented tomato pickle is quick and simple to prepare. You can use it as an accompaniment with any meal. I usually make this pickle during summer when the tomatoes are cheaper. If you have extra tomatoes in your fridge, just try this simple tomato pickle.

Fermented Tomato Pickle

  • 6-7 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 red chillies, cut into small pieces
  • Small piece of ginger, cut
  • 10-12 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp black mustard seeds (Edit: you may use yellow mustard seeds instead of the black ones)
  • Salt to taste
  • Chilli powder to taste
  • 5-6 tbsp olive oil
  • Dry-fry the black mustard seeds for about 3-4 minutes. Keep it aside to cool.
  • Once the seeds have cooled down, grind them to make a fine powder.
  • Put the rest of the ingredients and mix well. You may even eat this pickle at this stage.
Fermented Tomato Pickle
  • To ferment the pickle, use a clean and dry jar washed with hot water.
  • You can leave it outside for a day if you don't like your pickle too sour. If you like more sourness, leave it outside for 2-3 days.
  • You can refrigerate it for about a month.

    I've never had fermented tomatoes before - pickled tomatoes yes, but fermented no. They look delicious! Love all the peppers and chile but I found the ginger quite interesting. It makes sense when you look at the whole recipe. One of those recipes that I'm going to have to try not only because it looks so good, but because it's SO different!
