- 2 dry pints Pure Flavor® Cloud 9® Bite-Sized Fruity Tomatoes, halved
- 2 dried chili peppers, whole
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp fenugreek seeds
- ½ tsp cumin seeds
- ½ tsp mustard seeds
- ½ tsp fennel seeds
- ½ tsp nigella seeds
- ½ tsp turmeric powder
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper

Heat the oil in a pan over low heat and add the spices in the following order: fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, nigella seeds, and chilis.
Once the fennel seeds turn golden brown, add the tomatoes. Toss well to coat the tomatoes with oil. Add turmeric, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix and cover to cook for 2-3 minutes.
Uncover and gently press the tomatoes with the back of the spatula. The tomatoes should start to burst. Add sugar and stir well. Cook uncovered for 2 more minutes.
Let the dip cool slightly, top with basil slices, and serve it warm with your choice of bread.
