Tomato Chutney

Chutneys are a boon to have on hand. If you do not have on hand, then they can be done in a jiffy.. They are the best accompaniments to Idli, dosa and completes a meal. There are lot of things you do with this tomato chutney – some I can think of are – accompany with idli, dosa, paniyarams, spread it on bread, roll it with chapathi.. So many more..  I made this to serve along with dhokla and the combination was awesome.
