Tomato Chutney Appetizers with Blue Cheese Recipe

Tomato Chutney Appetizers with Blue Cheese

03.26.14 by Jackie

Living in a multicutural household, I love melding flavors on our plates. This evening, I had leftover tomato chutney and created mini blue cheese appetizers. How cute did they turn out? 

The spiciness from the chutney against the richness from the cheese is always a hit. And if you prepare the chutney in advance (you could also use any store-bought chutneys mixed with a bit of tomato sauce), you can bake these adorable appetizers in no time.

Aria, at only 28-months-old, is already the best sous-chef a mom could ever hope for. She helped me play and create disks of puff pastry. Aria's always eager to learn new things. Cooking with your toddler is a great method to practice and learn new shapes.

Since I had my daughter, I haven't had a lot of time to cook so I got some ready-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. instead of using regular tomato sauce I used indian tomato chutney to make the dish more flavorful. I topped it with fried paneer, smoked goat cheddar cheese, mozzarella and parmesan. This is not your average four-cheese pizza!

Tomato Risotto Recipe

This version of tomato risotto has a decidedly Indian sensibility. I flavored the rice with tomato chutney as I recently did with an Indian-inspired asparagus pie. The flavors from the chutney are so bold that no other spices and very little salt are needed. I just added chopped sun-dried tomatoes as garnish.

Making risotto takes a little bit of practice to begin with, but once you've worked on your fundamentals, you can start to use the basic recipe and create dozens of different variations. I've stuffed artichokes with risotto, paired pistachio pesto with celery risotto, stuffed it in zucchini flowers, made a roasted beet and ricotta cheese version, and also a rather unconventional risotto with bamboo; the list of adaptations is truly endless.

Indian Tomato Chutney with Mustard Seeds and Garlic (Tamatar Ki Chutney)

Tamatar Ki chutney is an Indian tomato chutney flavored with fresh curry leaves, mustard seeds and garlic. It's usually served with basmati rice or roti (an Indian wheat-basde flat bread). I love this chutney so much and we make it so often that I usually use the leftover chutney as the base for the tomato sauce in my pasta. I recently used that sauce for my vegetarian lasagna.

Since I married Lulu, I discovered a wide range of sauces and chutneys that were totally unfamiliar to me. Lulu's grandma was an amazing cook. When she discovered that I like to cook as well, she was very exticed to teach me all her secret recipes. In most of the world, cooking techniques are orally transmitted from mothers to daughters. I always find it amazing that these recipes, techniques and tips have managed to survive for as long as they have. I feel very fortunate to have learned from such talented cooks like my grand-mother-in-law.
