TOMATO GARLIC CHUTNEY FOR IDLI AND DOSA
HOW TO MAKE TOMATO GARLIC CHUTNEY- A SIMPLE BUT DELICIOUS CHUTNEY
Tomato garlic chutney is my favorite chutney ever. I do not enjoy eating garlic as is. But i like them in my soups and chutney. I learned this chutney from my mom’s tenant many years ago. This chutney tastes best when made with sesame oil and naatu thakkali aka country tomatoes.
The country tomatoes lend a unique tartness to this that rounds off the pungence of the garlic in this tomato garlic chutney. And the sesame oil gives this chutney an earthy flavor. All in all, this is heaven when eaten with piping hot idli or crisp dosa.
