Tomato Chutney Recipe without onion, garlic and coconut with step by step pictures and video. I have posted varieties of tomato chutney recipes (Thakkali chutney in Tamil) in my website but not even one chutney without onion and garlic. This morning, I prepared Kambu idli,dosa(Pearl millet idli/Bajra idli) for our breakfast and prepared this South Indian style tomato chutney recipe without adding onion, garlic and coconut. This recipe is very similar to my tomato chana dal chutney but I have used urad dal, coriander seeds as well. It tasted yummy when drizzled with sesame oil.

  • I have used 2 Kashmiri chillies/Byadgi chilli for bright red color and 2 long chillies for spiciness.
  • You can replace Kashmiri chillies with one or two spicy chilli if you like.
  • Addition of Coriander seeds is optional but it gives a  nice flavor. Do not add more than the mentioned quantity.
  • Curry leaves is also for flavor. You can skip if you don’t like it. You can use 1 tbsp of coriander leaves instead.
  • Do not add more curry leaves. Chutney smells raw.
  • As this chutney is without onion and garlic, tempering is a must to enhance its flavor. So don’t skip it.
