Tomato Chutney-Side Dish For Idly and Dosa

Today's recipe is a simple spicy and tangy chutney,a good accompaniment for idly and dosa which is one of my favorite.The juicy tomatoes are sauteed along with green chillies for spicy and flavored with garlic makes the chutney delicious.
As the weather is cold day by day here,especially since monday it is terrible cold(14 F) not feeling to cook anything special,but the taste buds wanted something spicy and hot.
To satisfy the cravings I made this chutney and enjoyed along with the idly for breakfast.Here goes the recipe....  


Tomato3nos.(medium size)
Green Chilly6-7nos.
Garlic/poondu3 clove
Tamarind(optional)blueberry size
Salt 11/2tsp
Oil 1tbs
For the Tempering
Mustard seeds/kadugu1/2tsp
Urad dhal/Uluttham Paruppu1tsp
Curry leaves(chopped)few leaves


                Finely chop the tomatoes and garlic,slit the green chillies.Start by heating the pan with oil and saute the green chillies and garlic.Then add the tomatoes.
Cook it till the tomatoes get mushy.Once it turned mushy and cooked well turn off the flame and add the tamarind if you are using.Let it cool down completely. Blend it well in blender along with salt to a fine paste.Heat a pan with oil and do the tempering and add the ground chutney to it.No need to cook.
Spicy and tangy tomato chutney is ready.

Serve it with fluffy idly or dosa.


  • The chutney will be in the spicy side as we like to have it spicy with idly.
  • Use of green chillies and garlic makes the chutney more flavorful,do not use the red chilly.
  • Adding the tamarind is purely optional if the tomatoes are sour enough then no need of it.
