Red Chutney for Idli Dosa
Onion Tomato Chutney is one of the quickest and easiest chutney recipes I make often.I have already posted a version of onion tomato chutney...This is ammas version she usually makes this for travel as a side dish for idlis or uttapams and I can say this is one the versatile chutneys as it goes well for most breakfast dishes.I love it with chapati too.

Onion Tomato Chutney Recipe

My Notes:

  • The consistency is purely your choice, you can make it more like thokku or a bit runny too.
  • Adjust red chillies according to your spice level.
  • Adding garlic is optional but gives a great flavour.
  • If you are making for travel then add more oil(may be a tbsp for this measure) and make like a thooku and it will stay good for 2 days atleast in room temperature.
