  • Mixer Grinder


  • 2 nos Tomato Big Size
  • 1 nos Onion (or 8-10 shallots)
  • 1 cup Mint Leaves (1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 1 nos Green Chili
  • 1 nos Red Chili
  • 2 tbsp Urad Dal
  • 2 tbsp Grated Coconut
  • 1 tbsp Cooking Oil (preferably Sesame Oil)
  • 1 pinch Tamarind Optional (or 1/2 tsp Tamrind Paste)
  • ½ tsp Salt adjust to your taste

For Tempering

  • 1 tsp Cooking Oil (preferably Sesame Oil)
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tsp Split Urad Dal


  • Roughly Chop the Onion, Tomato and keep it aside. Also pluck the mint leaves and clean it in water.
  • Heat a pan and add the cooking oil. Once the oil is hot add Urad dal, Green chili & Red Chili and start frying them till the dal becomes light brown and aroma comes out
  • Add chopped Onion and saute them till it becomes glossy.
  • Add tomatoes and saute them till the tomatoes are nicely mushy
  • As tomatoes are already tangy, I did not add tamarind. But, if your tomatoes are not tangy, then you can add a pinch of tamarind while grinding.
  • Now add the Pudhina (Mint) leaves and saute them with the onion tomato mixture.
  • Finally add the grated coconut and give it a good mixture and cooke this in a low flame for about 2-3 minutes. Take all these ingredients into a mixer grinder and allow it to cool. Add the required salt. Once it's cool grind it to a fine paste without adding water.


  • In the pan pour the oil and add the mustard seeds once the oil is hot. When the mustard seeds sputter add the curry leaves. Add these empering into the ground chutney.
  • Spicy and flavorful Tomato Mint chutney is ready to serve.
