Tomato Chutney

Sharing is caring!

My Athamma is famous for her Chutneys. Whenever she used to visit us, I used to ensure she prepares all her series of Chutneys for a feast. This one is the most simplest one, yet so tasty and easy to prepare. She calls it Adarabadara Chutney, which means coarsely ground one. All the ingredients are only partial ground which adds flavor when we chew on it.

We make this for hot Dosas

Preparation time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 10 mins
Cuisine : Andhra

Ingredients needed

Tomatoes – 2 medium
Onion- 1
Garlic – 4 pods
Curry leaves – 5
Coriander leaves – 4 springs
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
salt to taste
Oil – 1 tsp

Method to prepare

Chop onion and tomato. Heat oil in a tawa and fry chopped onion, then curry leaves. Once its little brown, then add tomatoes. Fry for a while, then add salt and chilli powder. Remove

Once it is cool, run it for one or two rounds in mixie with garlic pods and coriander leaves.

The chutney should not become smooth.

This tastes fantastic with Dosa.
