Mint - Tomato Chutney / Pudhina Thakali Chutney

Mint - Tomato Chutney is an easy and flavorful chutney, which goes perfect with hot Idli and Dosa. The same recipe can also be prepared using green chillies instead of the dried red ones. Adjust the quantity of chillies according to taste bud. We always prefer gingelly oil for the seasoning, as it gives a delicious flavor and aroma, but it can also be substituted with the regular ones.

Ingredients :

2 Tomatoes, chopped
3 - 4 Dry red chillies ( Adjust according to taste bud )
1 Cup Mint leaves /  Pudhina
Handful of Curry leaves
Small piece of Ginger 
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp Oil 

For Tadka / Thalimpu : 

2 Tsp Oil ( Gingelly Oil )
1 Tsp Mustard Seeds
Few Curry leaves
A pinch of Hing 

Method :

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a pan and add Tomato pieces followed by Dry red chillies, Mint leaves, Curry leaves and Ginger.

Saute it for couple of minutes and cool the mixture.

Grind into fine paste by adding required amount of salt and little water.

Heat 2 Tsp oil in a small pan and add Mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add hing and curry leaves.

Fry and add it to the ground chutney.


Serving Options :

Serve with Hot Idlis or Dosa.
