Easy Tomato Chutney

This is a quick and easy chutney. Goes well with idli, dosa, chapathi and pongal.



Tomato – 2 (Big)
Shallots – 6 to 7
Garlic Pods – 5 to 6
Green Chilly – 1
Curry leaves – a few
Ginger - a small piece
Salt – to taste
Sambar Powder – ½ tspn
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Asafoetida – a pinch
Mustard seeds – ¼ tspn
Coriander seeds – ¼ tspn
Cumin seeds – ¼ tspn
Oil – ½ tspn
Coriander Leaves – to Garnish
Fine chop the chilly, ginger,shallots and garlic. Cut the tomatoes into big chunks. Heat the oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once it crackles, add the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, shallots, garlic, ginger, chilly, curry leaves and asafoetida. Saute till the shallots turn a bit transparent. Now add the tomatoes, salt and sambar powder. Mash the tomatoes with a ladle now & then. Once cooked, remove from flame, garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

Cook's Note :

  1. I used homemade sambar powder. You can use store bought ones also.
  2. If sambar powder is not available you can use chilly powder also. But sambar powder enhances the taste.
