Tomato chutney is one of the Indian Chutney recipes served as a side dish with many varieties of snacks and rice dishes. It tastes great when accompanied with idli, dosa, Pesarattu etc. Due to its hot and spicy and tangling nature, children like to eat like a sandwich stuffing ingredient to their bread or burgers.
We can directly use this chutney without temper but by adding temper will reduce spiciness and adds aroma and extra punch of flavor. Also in order to get the nutty flavor, we can even add urad dal or chana dal while preparing temper.
Tomato Chutney can be made by both raw and ripe tomatoes. Based on the variant we use the color of this recipe may vary. In some areas, I have seen people adding fresh coconut while blending to enhance flavor but this variation must be used on same day.
