Tomato Chutney | thakkali chutney recipe

Today I am sharing an easy tomato chutney recipe. Simple Tomato Chutney is the perfect accompaniment to idli and dosas! I have used very less spice here, only 3 dried red chillies. If you love spice, feel free to double or even triple the amount. A simple tadka (tempering) of curry leaves and mustard seeds, in the end,
is optional but highly recommended. I can’t eat my chutney without a simple tadka but you can skip it.
