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.
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 :
