Tomato Chutney / Curry

Tomato Chutney is not the exact chutney that we make using coconut. It is more like a curry or gravy and I like it the most. It is a little spicy and sour with the brilliant color. It goes very well with any kind of dosa, plain rice, chapathi and paratha.

NOTE :  
  • Number of green chilies depend on how spicy they are. I am using 4 as mine are not very spicy.
  • Don't add water as tomatoes have little water content in them.
  • Optional - turmeric powder, garam masala powder and coriander powder.
