Onion Tomato Chutney
We all love this chutney at my home as it goes very well with almost all south indian tiffin items. I even love to have this with curd rice :) My mom's preparation of this chutney is without garlic, but garlic do surely enhance the taste and flavour of this chutney. Do try this and let me know your comments :)
Onion - 1 big or 2 small ones
Tomato - 2 medium sized ones
garlic pods - 3 to 4
Ginger - small piece
Tamarind - small amla size
red chilly - 5-6
Channa dhal, urad dhal, jeera - little amount
Heat oil in a kadai and add red chillies, tamarind piece, channa dhal and urad dhal to it. Once the dhals turn to golden red colour, add the jeera seeds. Remove the content from the kadai and put it in a plate. Let it cool for some time. Now in the same kadai, add the chopped onion, garlic and ginger piece to the oil and fry till the onion becomes golden colour. Add the tomato pieces to it. Simmer the flame and leave it till the tomatoes are nicely smashed. Switch off the flame and let it cool for sometime.
Now grind all the above with required amount of salt. Finally season it with mustard seeds and curry leaves.
Delicious onion tomato chutney is ready :)
