The Tomato Chutney is a tongue-tickling accompaniment that is perfect to have with idlis and dosas.
Although it takes a few minutes to prepare, many people prefer to make it often because it is faster than grating a coconut, plus it has a holistic flavour that eliminates the need for sambhar also to be served alongside the chutney.
With myriad flavour enhancers like curry leaves, onions and green chillies supporting the tanginess of tomatoes, the Tomato Chutney has a really peppy flavour that goes perfectly with plain idlis, dosas, uttapas and appe as well. Interestingly, many South Indian love to have this with chapatis and puris too.
