Tomato Coriander Mint Chutney

Home grown pudina along with fresh coriander leaves and plump, ripe, juicy red tomatoes from farmer’s market, sauteed with cumin, green chillis and split gram dal, blended to a coarse paste and tempered with asafoetida and curry leaves. Yields a simple, quick and satisfying pachadi that went down really well with Idli, our morning breakfast. Tart flavored tomatoes are cloaked with hints of sweetness and spice and brightened with a pronounced herb-y flavor!

    Dear Sailu Garu

    The recipe is good but you should add few more green chillies. All chutnies will be great if they are spicy. There is no “Mazaa” without spice in the chutnies.

  10. I make a very similar but much simpler chutney that my grand mom taught me. I posted it on my blog recently! Great minds think alike 😀
