onion tomato chutney

onion tomato chutney recipe - red chutney for dosa       Why ‘Easy’ Onion Tomato Chutney ? Yes its easy for me. I already posted my MIL’s version of Onion tomato chutney recipe that she makes for so many years and I just love it too. It has lots of frying part like channa dal, red chilli and onion, tomato. Also it has coconut. So this one is so simple with only 3 main ingredients ~ Onion, tomato and red chilli powder. Isn’t it cool? I had got few requests to post red chutney recipe for idli dosa. This is Aj’s most favourite chutney. Perfect with dosa varieties. Its one of those kind they serve in restaurants along with the white and green chutneys.  Refer coconut chutney - for white and mint chutney and coriander chutney for green chutneys.

    • Adjust the chilli powder according to the tanginess of tomatoes.
    • I used small sized tomato and onion so used 2 each.
    • I used kashmiri red chilli powder. Its the best to give bright red colour.
    • You can add a pinch of sugar for a different taste.
    • You can temper with asafoetida powder if you like.
       Its the best chutney for dosas the best. I had with verum arisi dosa, which is my next post. Bliss
