Tomato Chutney

My mother-in-law makes this chutney to go with dosa or idli.  Thanks to Shobana who gave me her version of the recipe!  Delicious!

4 small onions, roughly chopped
2-3 small tomatoes, roughly chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil

Heat oil in a frying pan.  Saute onions, tomato, garlic, salt in pan until tomatoes are soft and pulpy.  Allow to cool.  Put in blender along with 1 red chili (if you don't have a whole red chili substitute red chili powder, to taste).  Blend until smooth, set aside.

In a teaspoon of oil, temper:
1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon urad dal
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds

When the seeds pop, switch off heat and add 6 or 7 curry leaves.  Pour into the tomato puree.  Tomato chutney is ready to serve!
