Tomato chutney made with chillies is a perfect and tasty chutney to serve with idli or pongal. Simple chutney which takes literally 10 mins to make.
This is my favourite chutney. I make them quite often because they are so easy to make and taste so yum. When you make this, try to get a double batch of it, so that you can store this in fridge and use whenever you need.
My little one like this chutney a lot, so make this with less chilli powder and have it in fridge, she loves it with her dosa or idli.
About Tomato Chilli Chutney
Tomato chutney is one of the basic and popular chutney recipe. In the past tomatoes are either roasted in the coal till it is charred and then pounded with chillies and other stuff in a mortar and pestle. I have a fancier version of roasted tomato chutney
Now we don't have that much time on hand. So make chutney faster and easier. This is one such recipe in which you take all ingredients and puree in a blender. Then cook that in gingelly oil.
Gingelly oil in tomato chutney is really delicious since it adds a mild aroma to the chutney and it is one of the healthiest oil.

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.
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.
Can i use this dip with gwaramari bread?
Yes u can
This is simply yummy recipe will try it soon and let u know the feedback ... thanks for u recipe sista:)
This chutney was so so yummy...We live abroad and my hubby took me to an Indian restaurant yesterday and asked me to try their tomato chutney which is his most favourite.I did try and it was yummy. And then he asked me to make a chutney similar to it at home. I obviously couldn't figure out their ingredients. Later I just found the picture of the chutney in this page to be similar to the one I had at that restaurant. So I just tried this chutney today and it came out really well. And the best part is that my hubby said he liked this chutney much more than the one he usually has in that restaurant. Very happy. Thank you 🙂
