This month, the theme belongs to my favorite- Tomatoes. Hosted by "RP of My Workshop", this event is going to be sure-fire hit. Many thanks to RP for hosting this wonderful event!
I wanted to make something different this time, so opted to make a delicious chutney to go with idlis for a Sunday brunch. I was inspired by this recipe for Tomato Chutney on Priya's Blog and wanted to try it ASAP! It came out really well, I must say.
Here is the recipe, I made a few changes to suit our Gujju tastes:
- 3 -large Ripe tomatoes - Chopped roughly
- 1- Red onion - chopped
- 1 -Dry red chilli
- 1 tsp-Mustard seeds
- 1 tbsp-Urad Daal
- Curry leaves - a few
- Asafoetida - to taste
- 1 tbsp- Idli Chutney Powder
- Sesame oil - 1 tsps/ Olive Oil - tsp
- Salt to taste, A little bit of sugar....( I can't help it, I'm a Pure Gujju Brahmin, gotta have that sugar)
I also served a roasted chana Daal chutney with this. Tomato Chutney was just the right kick I needed with my Idlis. This also makes the perfect weekend brunch. Try it and see.
