Tomato chutney is yet another chutney variety for Idly/Dosa. Unlike other chutneys, the tomato chutney is prepared little spicy and hot. I always prefer to make tomato chutney than other varieties as this combination is classic. Also this is no onion no garlic recipe. So perfect dish to make on Vrat (Fasting) days. Most of us use onion along with tomato to make a chutney, but here in this dish, its only tomato and to make it little tangy and yummy, we are going to boil the tomato paste with tamarind water and finally adding a tinge of fenugreek powder to enhance the flavor. Try this version of No Onion No Garlic Tomato Chutney and serve with hot Idli / Dosa!
