It takes only the sauteing time of the ingredients. So roughly within 10 minutes you can make this delicious tomato chutney for dosa. 

Chop the tomatoes and fry all the given ingredients and grind. That’s it you’re done. Give a quick tadka to improve the taste a little more.

Serving options

If you ask me how I will serve this chutney, I will blindly say I have no idea. Because I eat this yummy tomato chutney with hot idly, chapathi or even as a side dish for sambar rice, curd rice, etc.,

Just drizzle a few drops of ghee or coconut oil in the chutney and then serve it for some rich taste. Make this chutney in a big batch and use it for at least 2 days. 


To make the chutney more tasty and colourful, use well ripened tomatoes. If you don’t like the sour taste then use Bangalore tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes. 

Don’t burn or overcook the tomatoes, as it changes the flavour of the chutney. 

Tadka is completely optional.
