Onion Tomato Chutney

South Indian breakfast is really incomplete without chutney. South people prepare wide variety of chutneys with almost any vegetables and onion tomato chutney is one of them.

Onion tomato chutney is a basic condiment made using onions, tomatoes, red chilies and salt. Very easy to prepare and tastes really yummy and delicious. This can be made in different ways to suite your taste and liking. This is no coconut chutney. Great side dish for idli, dosa, uttappam and even rice. Lip smacking dish which is dairy free, gluten free, nut free and vegan.

Onion gives mild sweetness to this chutney and it balances the tangy taste of tomatoes. Red chilies gives bright color to the chutney.

      I haven't eaten chutney for a long time. Your recipe is very appealing. I love the taste of cooked tomatoes, so I think I would enjoy your version of chutney.
