Onion tomato chutney with a hint of jalapeno

I had some jalapenos in the fridge when i did not know what to do with. I usually dont use them in my kitchen. A friend of mine gave me some when she had extras in her fridge :) Not knowing what to do I was looking at other stuff that can go with it. I had planned dosa for dinner that day and so it struck me that i could give a try with jalapenos instead of red/green chillies. And wonder what .. it worked!!!! I did not give any heads up about the new venture and served it as usual. "Wow... today chutney is very delicious.. kinda different!!!!! " This  is what I heard from the dining table and I had a big :) on my face. One simple ingredient change and you can feel the difference. Try it and you too might like it
