This is the simplest chutney which is a great side dish for Idli/ Dosa. It can be had even with bread.Have you ever tried bread and sauce 🙂 , its too good. Same way this chutney can be eaten with bread as well. I always loved this chutney. There are many ways of preparing it. I am giving the simplest one. This can be made in 15 mins.


To grind

Tomato : 2

Red Onion : 1/2 sliced

Red Chili peppers – 4

Salt : 1/2 teaspoon

To season

Mustard seeds: 1/2 teaspoon

Urad dal : 1/2 teaspoon

Oil : 1 table spoon

Curry Leaves : few

Method: Grind all the ingredients. Make it to a fine paste. In a griddle heat the oil. Add mustard seeds, urad dal. Let it splutter. Once urad dal changes color, add curry leaves, in few seconds add the paste and let it heat for 5 mins until the tomato gets cooked. You can serve it hot with Idli/ Dosa.

If you don’t want to season it, you can just pour the paste in a nonstick pan with little oil heated. It should get thick. Stir constantly. It would splutter. You can close it and cook. Once it gets thick, you can spread it in bread and eat.

Its a simple and quick recipe.
