Onion-Tomato Chutney

I don’t know what to call this chutney- it has equal proportion of onions as well as tomatoes, so I call this chutney as Onion-Tomato chutney. I learnt this recipe from my sister in law and its one the easiest chutneys you can make when you are hurry to make something or lazy to cook. Here goes the recipe!!!


  • Heat the pan with oil, add 5-6 red chilies, 2 onions, 2 tomatoes, 5-6 flakes of garlic, 1 spring of curry leaves, few cilantro leaves, and salt.
  • Sauté everything for few minutes until the onion turns light brown and tomato becomes soft.
  • Turn off the heat and allow them to cool..
  • Grind to a smooth paste and serve with idlies or dosas.

Hi Priya,
I make the same chutney too.. except I add a spoon of tamarind water and season the chutney after grinding.It is sure a easy chutney and good combination for dosas and idlies.

I would like to really appreciate your weblog posts on various Indian recipes. I am currently in Irving, Texas on a business trip and Indian restaurants are bit farther unless you have a vehicle to drive.

While I really got bored with just sandwiches, french fries , veg fried rice, for a couple of days, your weblog came as a boon. Now a lot of recipes I could cook and learnt.

You are my Guru! Good work!
