Easy Tomato Chilli Chutney Recipe

This is like my favourite chutney. I make them quite often because they are so easy to make and taste so yum. When i make this, i try to get a double batch of it, so i can keep it in fridge and have it whenever i need. My little one like this chutney a lot, so i make this with less chilli powder and have it in fridge, she loves it with her dosa or idli, she licks my fingers when i feed her this..It is like finger licking good..

    I tried this recipe today and it turned out splendid. My husband was reminded about the taste of our hometown restaurants. We live abroad and fortunately i got a chance to serve him his favorite thakkali chutney... Thank you so much.

  10. Hi Aarthy,
    I added just 2-3 pods of garlic for grinding and tried this chutney. It was really yummy and superb. I hope others can try this option also if they like to add garlic, which is good for health.
