Tomato chutney

I learnt this chutney from my aunt, and whenever there are tomatoes in my house in abundance, I prepare this. My husband also likes this chutney very much. Very simple and easy, not many ingredients, not much effort required to make this. It goes well with rice, idli and dosas. 

Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins


Tomatoes: 250 gms
Oil: 3 tbsp
Garlic cloves: 10
Dry red chillies: 3, cut into halves
Curry leaves: 3 sprigs
Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Red chili powder: 2 tbsp(suit your spice level)


  1. Cut the tomatoes lengthwise and keep aside. Add curry leaves and red chillies to the tomatoes.
  2. Heat oil in a kadai and fry the garlic cloves till they turn golden brown.
  3. Add the tomatoes, curry leaves and red chillies at a time.
  4. Add turmeric powder, salt and red chili powder.
  5. Cook on low flame till the oil starts leaving the kadai.
  6. Serve with hot steamed rice.
  • Keep stirring the tomatoes every 5 minutes so that it doesn't get burnt.
