Onion-Tomato Chutney Recipe

Onion-Tomato Chutney Recipe 

This chutney is my one of the quick-fix side-dish for idlis/dosa. TH loves it with dosa topped with some oil. I prefer to avoid coconuts in my food. To my personal opinion i feel it will increase the cholesterol level. This chutney doesn't need coconut. So if u wants to avoid coconut in ur food (just like me) this chutney is the best choice. And also it doesn't require much time. You can make it while steaming the idlis. Since we are grinding everything together there is no need to chop onion and tomatoes finely. If u likes the mint and coriander flavor, try adding it. I love the mint version of this chutney. 

Preparation and Cooking time: 5-7 minutes


1 big size onion
3 medium size tomatoes
2 green chillies
½ inch ginger
Pinch of Hing/asofoetida

 To temper

½ tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp urad dal
1-2 red chillies
1tsp oil

  • Switch off the stove and cool for some time.
