Homemade Recipe of South Indian Tomato and Onion Chutney

Below I am going to share with you the best recipes to make tomato and onion chutney like you find in South Indian restaurants around the world. This is an easy to make homemade recipe and has multiple benefits on your taste buds.


1.    Onions: 2 (cut into medium size pieces)
2.    Tomatoes: 2 or 3 depending on the size (cut into pieces)
3.    Small bunch of coriander leaves
4.    Red chilies: 2 ( depending again, how spicy you want it to be)
5.    1 garlic
6.    1 green chilly
7.    1 Tablespoon black gram (urad dal) (Make sure the urad dal is less, otherwise it masks the taste of onion and tomato).
8.    A little bit of asafetida (hing).


1.    Add one teaspoon of oil in a pan and fry the black gram dal, red chillies, and hing. While the black gram dal turns golden brown, transfer it to another vessel.
2.    Add the onions to the same pan and sauté until it becomes transparent, Now add the tomatoes and sauté again until they turn soft, add the green chillies and garlic also to it, While you are just about to switch off the stove, add coriander. You can add it raw too while grinding.
3.    Now in the mixer, run the black gram pulses, red chilles mixture, for a while. Add the onions, tomatoes mixture and grind until it becomes a smooth paste.
4.    Add enough salt and season it with coconut oil (again optional, you can use any edible oil) with mustard. It tastes really yummy.

Now serve and enjoy this tasty South Indian chutney recipe at home with masala dosa or idly vada whatever you like.
