Onion Tomato Chutney | Easy Chutney Recipes

Eating idli and dosai becomes so monotonous unless we make side dishes that tastes awesome. And everyday thinking of a side dish is itself is an event! I tasted this chutney at my mother in laws house – she is a great cook and anything she makes tastes delicious! I loved this chutney and since my husband also liked it, this has become a regular in our home.

It is very simple to make with no masalas. You can temper with mustard seeds and add at the end. I always do that or you can serve as it is.
Preparation time – 5 mins | Cooking time – 10 mins | Serves - 2

  • Onion   -    2 medium
  • Tomato -   2 medium
  • Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
  • Coriander leaves - 2 tbsps.
  • Green Chilli  -  2-3 (as per taste)
  • Oil   -  1 tsp
To Temper
  • Mustard seeds -1 tsp
  • Urad dal - ½ tsp
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Hing - a pinch
  • Curry leaves - few

1. Chop the onions and tomatoes roughly. 
2. In a kadai, add oil and add the onions and tomatoes and saute till the raw smell leaves. 
3. Add the curry leaves, coriander leaves and green chilli and saute for a few mins.

4. Switch off and let it cool.
5. Once cooled, transfer it to a blender and add required salt. Blend well.

6. In a small pan, add oil and temper with the ingredients given under ‘to temper’.
7. Add this to the ground chutney and mix well.
8. Serve hot with idli or dosa.

1. Adjust the spice level according to your taste. This was very spicy for us.
2. Tempering is optional. You can serve the chutney without tempering too.

Until next time,
