Onion Tomato Chutney

Onion Tomato Chutney is a perfect accompaniment with Idli and Dosa. Usually this is served in most of the hotels along with coconut chutney. 

Ingredients:
Onion 1, chopped
Tomato 1, chopped
Garlic pod 1, peeled and cut
Dry Red Chilli 1
Green Chilli 1
Roasted Gram / Dariya / Pottukadalai 1 tbsp
Grated Coconut 1 tbsp
Jeera powder a pinch
Oil 1 1tbsp
Salt as per taste
Water as per needed
For tempering:
Oil 1 tsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Curry Leaves few

Method:
In a pan heat oil, add dry red chilli,garlic, green chilli and onion and saute till onion turns golden brown.

Now add salt and tomato and saute till it is cooked and its raw smell goes. Switch off and allow to cool.
Now add grated coconut.
Now transfer it to the mixer, add roasted gram / dariya and jeera powder and grind it to chutney consistency. Add water accordingly if it is very thick. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Now lets temper it:
In a tempering pan, heat oil, add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add curry leaves and pour it over the chutney.
{Tip: Immediately close with a lid for sometime, so that the tempering is fully absorbed in the chutney which will add that extra special taste in the chutney}.

Note:
I am adding coconut after switching the flame because, I don't like the coconut smell that is left when added hot.
