A tangy accompaniment, tomato chutney goes well with idli, dosa, appe, and even chapathi or puri. A balanced dose of onion, curry leaves and red chillies gives it a spicy feel that complements bland dishes quite well.

Yes, i can make resturant type chutney at home. Everyone liked it very much. I have added garlic and coconut to it and it became amazing accompaniment to Idli and Dosas. Thanks for amazing treat.
