Tomato chutney is a side dish recipe made out of tomatoes as a main ingredient. It is called as ‘Thakkali Chutney’ in tamil. Though it is prepared throughout India, it is very famous in South India.
Personally, Iam a big tomato chutney lover❤ I like to try many types of variations in this chutney. The tanginess from tomatoes, the flavor of garlic, the spice from red chillies and the color of it…. if you let me talk about it, I will keep on describing!!
I have used 1 medium sized onion in this recipe to balance the tanginess from tomato but it can prepared without using onion too. I will come up with a recipe for it. If you do not want to use garlic, use little ginger instead.
This South Indian based tomato chutney🍅🍅 is a best side dish for idli, dosa, pongal, curd rice etc…, It can be used as a spread too.
