Print Friendly and PDF
Tomato onion chilli chutney is my mother in law's special side dish recipe. It is a Tamil nadu style recipe. This thakkali vengayam and pachai milagi chutney tastes good with idli and dosa. We had a chutney similar to this taste at Adayar Anandha bhavan hotel. Try this. U’ll like it.We do this for breakfast mostly. If you make it spicy, it goes well with dosa ( pulicha maavu dosai ;).

  • Green chilli – 3-4 nos
