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!
