Tomato Onion Chutney

Tomato Onion Chutney:A spicy and flavorful South Indian style tomato and onion chutney are too good to enjoy licking. I once tried this recipe from Vah Chef last year and since then it has become a family favourite recipe.The chutney tastes so delicious and pairs very well with all the dishes.

I recollect when we were in the States I made this chutney at a South Indian friends house for dinner. All the guest loved this chutney. We moved back in Ireland after few days and I still remember my friend asked the recipe for the chutney and if I had it on the blog. I gave her the recipe on Whatsapp and told her I will post it soon. Finally, today I got a chance to post this here on the blog. Of all the South Indian chutneys I have ever tasted this one is most delicious of all.
