Tomato Jam

 I have nostalgia when I'm preparing this recipe. My Amma used to make tomato jam during the tomato season. My sister and I loved it and we used to have it everyday for breakfast from dosa to bread.  One morning I was looking at my Amma's list of recipes and realized that I missed eating tomato jam. In my recipe, I have used brown sugar instead of white sugar. The color varies lightly but the taste will be the same.


  • Ripe vine Tomatoes - 1 dozen
  • Brown sugar or White sugar - 1 cup (adjust as per taste)
  • Ghee / Clarified butter - 1 tbsp
  1. Coarsely chopped the tomatoes( I have used food chopper )
  2. In a big bottom pan add coarsely chopped tomatoes cook on a low flame. Stirring often
  3. Once lightly cooked add sugar. Stirring occasionally. Until mixture has consistency of jam. 
  4. Lastly add table spoon of ghee and stir. Turn off the flame and then cool transfer into glass jar  refrigerate. 
  5. Tomato jam is ready to use.
