Tomato Chutney

Chutneys are almost always a must with dosa or idlis. Its boring to have the same kind of chutney every time. Different tastes will never get us bored even if we have to eat dosas every day:) This chutney was my favorite when i was a kid. It wasnt made very often at home for no reason. But after being the boss of my kitchen I always have the choice of making it whenever I feel like.

This is what u'll need....

Coconut 2 tbspn
Onion 1 medium
Tomato 1 big
Chutney dal 2 tbspn
Red chillies 4
Salt to taste
Tamarind - size of a pea
Mustard 1/2 tspn
Urad dal 1/2 tspn

Here is the stir....
  • Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onions
  • Fry for a couple of mins and toss in the tomatoes. Continue frying for 2-3 mins
  • Put chutney dal, red chillies, salt and tamarind. Cook the mixture for another 5 mins
  • Cool the mix and grind it to a very fine paste adding little water if required
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard, urad dal. Stir till the urad dal is brown. Pour the chutney into it and cook for 2 mins to warm it up.
