Tomato chutney

This was introduced to me by someone from Tamil Nadu, who used help me in kitchen when I lived in Mumbai.We in Kerala, usually make chutney tamarind which gives the sour taste but yes Tomato’s are good option too, gives a totally different taste with coriander leaves/cilantro.  


To Grind 

Tomato 2 large
Coconut 1/4 cup
Ginger   a tiny lil piece 
shallots  3to 4 no’s 
Coriander leaves -2 table spoon
Red chili powder – 1 tsp

Oil  – vegetable oil  – 2 Tsp 
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp 
Dry Red Chili   2 no’s 
Curry leave       a few 
Shallots             2 to 3 no’s 

Grind the main Ingredients (under grind )
Heal oil and pop the mustard seeds , followed by the other ingredients ( under seasoning )
Add the tomato mixture to it , cook for a few minutes.
Add salt to taste , stir and serve hot with Dosa or Idli.
