Tomatoes & Onion Chutney
This is a excellent condiment to go with idlis or Dosas. Not just the taste but the ease and speed with which this chutney can be made, makes it so much more appealing.
Onion - 1 large or 2 medium sized. Chopped - no need to worry about shape or size.
Tomato - 2 medium size. Chopped
Mustard Seeds (kadugu) - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves (Karuveppila) - 8-10 . Be Generous.
Salt to Taste
Oil - 1 1/2 tsp
In a saute pan heat oil. Add the mustard and wait til they splutter. The add the curry leaves. Add the chopped onions and tomatoes. Stir once till the oil coats everything. Cook on medium heat for 10 -12 minutes until the onions are soft and the tomatoes are almost mashed up on touch. Make sure that they dont get burnt. Turn off the heat and let it cool.
Once cooled put the miture in a blender and blend until smooth, 4 -5 pulses should do the job. You will not need to add water as the water released from the tomatoes should be enough.
Move to a bowl and add salt as needed.
You can increase/ decrease the amount of Onion or tomatoes to vary the taste.
