Tomato chutney

The tomato is a low-calorie food packed with nutrition, especially when fully ripe.  Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, carotenes (especially lycopene), biotin, and vitamin K. They are also a very good source of vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, niacin, folic acid, and dietary fiber.Tomato is rich in vitamin C and contains some vitamin B and vitamin A. The vitamin C content increases as the vegetable ripens. The nutritional value of tomato makes it good for weight loss, obesity, eye disorders, night blindness, urinary tract infection, liver disorders, jaundice, indigestion, morning sickness, constipation, diarrhea, intestinal disorders, and diabetes. It also helps in cleansing the body of toxic compounds.
