This tangy chutney is the best combination for bland dishes like Idli and appe! One of the most popular South Indian chutneys, this is sure to perk up any meal it is served with. Purée the mixture of sautéed tomatoes, onions and dals a bit coarsely, to enjoy a chunky salsa-like texture. The best part is that this delectable Tomato Chutney is made with just a single teaspoon of oil and no other fatty ingredients, so it is a real guilt-free treat!

Very good mouthfeel and falvours makes this chutney a super hit. This can be had as an accompaniment to dosas, khakhras or even rolled in chapati to make a snack. I make a batch of this chutney and store it the refrigerator when have some time on hand.

Looks like an Indian Salsa….tastes truly amazing with Chips and snacks like Idlis, Dosas and for that matter any parathas! I tried adding a little sugar to this to make it kids friendly, but it tastes better when it is little spicy. I think it’s a nice way to give an Indian touch to an international cuisine!
