Tomato onion chutney

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.  


Tomato Onion Chutney

Tomatoes--4-5 (cut into big pieces)

Onions--3 ( cut into pieces)

Ginger --1 Tablespoon

Chilli powder--1 teaspoon

Oil--1/4 cup

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.
