Tomato Chutney


Tomato chutney is so easy to make, you can just change the taste a bit by altering the proportions of onion and tomato. I have not tempered the chutney towards the end, but just to make it more flavorsome you can temper with mustard seeds, dry red chilies and curry leaves. but there is really no need, as the chutney tastes good even without tempering.

Preparation time: 2o min | Serves 3



Tomato                – 3

Onion                  – 2

Green chilly       – 2

Curry leaves       – 1 sprig

Chilly powder    – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds

Salt as required


Heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once it completes spluttering add onion into it.


Add the chopped onions and saute till they are softened then add chopped green chilly and curry leaves.


After sometime when it cooks add tomatoes. Stir and saute till the tomatoes have softened and cooked. Ensure that  no raw aroma is left.IMG_3896

Then add chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt . Cook it for a minute. Then keep side.let the chutney mixture become cool. later add in a chutney grinder or a blender jar. You can grind it without adding water or if you are preferring even smooth consistency then add a tbsp water.

Serve the chutney with Dosa Idli or Vada 🙂
