TOMATO CHUTNEY FOR IDLI/DOSA

Print Friendly and PDF
I tried this recipe from jey's blog..I usually make tomato chutney using chana dal .This recipe is also similar to that but she used fried gram dal and garlic which made me to give a try. It was very nice with idli. Smile . As i had less onions in my pantry , i used more tomatoes & less onion. The actual recipe suggested to use equal number of onions & tomatoes.Try any based on ur liking.


INGREDIENTS
  • Tomato – 2 nos
  • Big onion – 1 no
  • Red chillies – 4 - 5 nos ( for less spice , use 3)
  • Fried gram dal / Pottukadalai – 2 tbsp
  • Garlic cloves – 4 nos
  • Salt & water – As needed
To temper
  • Cooking oil – 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
METHOD
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a kadai and add the red chillies & garlic flakes.saute well and then add the sliced onions. Saute until the onions turn transparent.Then add the chopped tomatoes.Saute till tomato turns mushy. Add salt for quick saute.
  • At last add the fried gram dal and switch off the flame. Grind to a smooth paste and temper with ingredients given above.
