Our family dinners in India included at least one chutney prepared in a jiffy just before the meal. They are a welcome addition to the meals and the variety of chutney's one can prepare with available ingredients is endless.
Now is summertime and tomatoes are abundant in my vegetable garden. So after preparing soups and adding them to every curry I can imagine I remembed this chutney recipe. It tastes very good with Dosa's, Wada and Idli.
Tomatoes--4-5 (cut into big pieces)
Onions--3 ( cut into pieces)
Ginger --1 Tablespoon
Chilli powder--1 teaspoon
Tamarind pulp--1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Take oil in a pan and heat it. When oil is ready add the ginger and saute for few seconds. Now add the onions, tomatoes and add the chilli powder. Cook the mixture till it becomes soft. Now cool it and grind it to a paste in a mixer. Take some oil in pan and heat it , add the tomato-onion paste, and let it cook till the oil separates.Season with salt.
Note-- If the tomatoes are sour then dont use the tamarind paste.
