This chutney is a very simple one......in my family circles, it is called "Chingwing chutney".....don't know why...it was named so by my cute little 6 year old niece, when I got married...and from thence, the same name continues.......we all never call it tomato - onion chutney...but everybody calls it "Chingwing"!!!
Such lovely, ripe and firm tomatoes are available here and how can I not make this yum yum chutney??
This was made and served with Ragi - whole wheat dosas.





Ingredients
Tomatoes - 10, chopped
Onions - 3, chopped
Green chillies - 2, slit
Chilli powder - 2 tsps
Sambar powder - 2 tsps
Coriander / cilantro leaves - 2 cups
Salt to taste

To Season
Cooking oil - 4-5 tsps
Asafoetida powder - 3/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 2 tsps
Jeera - 2 tsps

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Side/breakfast/lunch/dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 15 mts

Serves 8

Heat a pan, add oil and season the ingredients mentioned above

Add green chillies and chopped onions......


and now, the tomatoes.....


Add chilli powder, sambar powder and salt


Add the chopped cilantro / coriander leaves too after mixing well.


                              Keep on medium fire, and saute till the tomatoes become mushy.

Allow to cool down, then blend in a hand blender. Care must be taken not to blend it to a smooth chutney. It must be a coarse one, with some small bits of tomatoes and onions. Few years back, I used to mash it in a clay pot with a wooden thick ladle.(called "mathu" in tamil)


The coarse textured aromatic chutney


Serve this simple, tasty chutney with Ragi - whole wheat dosas
