#NaPoWriMo | Day 9 | Chutney

a splash of oil in a heated pan
and a sprinkle of mustard seeds
eager to see the jesty lover’s game
i let them mingle on a humble flame

on the sidelines, knife comes alive
on the board, tomatoes are sliced
juices gush about with every blow
cubes pierced excruciatingly slow

tomatoes are then slowly
poured into the steamy pan
sizzle, gobble, guzzle, grumble,
relaxed, they begin to crumble

topped with sugar, spices myriad
they cook in water, under the lid
as flesh comes off, gooey they get
i realise for my fritters, i am all set
