onion tomato chutney is inspired from South Indian cuisine. It is made with tomatoes, onions and spices. The flavor is tangy, spicy and also has a nutty aroma. Traditionally tomato onion chutney is made in mortar and pestle but now a days no one uses those complex methods and instead use a food processor or a grinder.

Chutney's are made in every Indian household and each has their style of preparing it. Chutney's are basically condiments and dips and we show you how to make tomato onion chutney.

As i said every household has their own style of making South Indian style tomato chutney using some of the basic ingredients used in every Indian household. We had made onion tomato chutney using tomatoes which are the base of the chutney and provide tanginess. Next we have used onions which balance the tanginess of tomatoes, further chana dal and urad dal which provide a nutty taste and aroma to the chutney, few green chillies for some spice, curry leaves for some freshness and we have cooked all these ingredients and blend them together to get a smooth paste. Thereafter we have tempered tomato onion chutney as South Indian chutney's are incomplete without tempering. We have only used mustard seeds and kashmiri red chillie for the tempering which perks up the flavor of the tomato onion chutney.

South Indian style tomato chutney goes really well with idlis, dosas, vadas and appam. onion tomato chutney is my go to chutney on weekends for breakfast. It is extremely quick and easy to make and its my family's favorite chutney. Also, you can store tomato onion chutney the refrigerator for 10 days but you need to pack it in a air tight container.
