Tomato Chutney / Fabulous Blog Award

Print Friendly and PDF

Tomato Chutney:

Tomato Chutney is a very tasty recipe, made with fresh tomatoes and spices. My Mother-in-law makes this chutney often, whenever the tomato season is on.   

This healthy chutney has a sweet-tart flavor with a spicy taste. The tempering of the spices like cumin & curry leaves imparts a irresistible flavor to it.

It makes an great accompaniment with Idly, dosa & vada for breakfast. 

Try this recipe at home and I’m sure that your kids will be asking for more..:)
