Onion Tomato Chutney (Version 3)

I like to try different kinds of chutney for Dosa and Idly. In this version of Onion Tomato Chutney I have added little ginger to the onion and tomato. This Onion Tomato Chutney will taste like hotel chutney and will beĀ  good especially with Dosa.

  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves – 1 string
  • Split urad dal – 1/2 tsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and add red chillies followed by the onions.

  3. Add the chopped ginger followed by the tomatoes.
  4. Fry till they become soft and remove from the heat.
