I love onion tomato chutney especially for dosa and utthappam. We can make onion and tomato chutney in different ways. By adding and changing few ingredients we can change the taste. This version of onion and tomato chutney is my mother-in-law’s special. This time when I went to India I got the recipe from her. I found it very different as we add the dhals too for grinding.
