Recipe Notes

I like this chutney coarse in texture and that is how it is made traditionally too. But if you like a smooth creamy texture, go ahead and grind it even more.

You can increase or decrease the amount of chilli according to your taste.

Use the fresh, ripe tomatoes to make this chutney. The red colour of the tomato shows in the final dish.

Tempering is optional. You can choose to skip it.
