Peanut Tomato Chutney | Easy Chutney Recipes

I am always on the lookout for interesting chutney recipes which will taste good with idli or dosa, uthapam or even vada. My friend Rohini Mahesh, shared this recipe of peanut tomato chutney and since I already make a plain peanut chutney, I knew this would taste awesome too! So I tried this out as soon as she shared it and we had it for oats idli and true to what she said, this chutney tasted absolutely yum! 

Peanut Tomato Chutney

One of the reasons why I love this chutney is because, I already love peanuts and this doesn't use coconut and it's very easy to make. Also this chutney does not get spoilt like the coconut chutney so you can use this chutney to pack for lunch boxes too.
