For the day 3 of the blogging marathon, color chosen is RED. So I thought will make this yummy tomato chutney. My mom used to make this at home. When she says for dinner it is chappathi and tomato chutney, thats all, chappathis will disappear very fast. This is the first ever chutney I learnt to make when I started my cooking. Mom was working. So sometimes when she is so tired after coming back from work, she would ask me to make chutney and the rest she would take care. So always my first choice was this chutney and second preference to coconut chutney. :) I think this pairs well with chappathi but hubby prefers it with dosa. For me this combo, is nostalgic.
- Puree the tomatoes in a blender.
- In a sauce pan, heat oil add mustard seeds, and when they crack add onions, slit green chillies and curry leaves. Saute them till onions turn translucent.
- Then add turmeric powder and pureed tomatoes to this, mix well and add salt to taste and simmer it for 10-12 minutes. The mixture will turn colour from pale red to bright red when it is cooked and ready.
- Turn off the stove and serve it with chappathis, dosas or even idli's.
