Chettinad Tomato Chutney

This weekend has been busy for us.Today, I chose this recipe which I could compose easily.This chutney was actually planned to post along with the Chettinad Vella Paniyaram ,which I prepared last week.This chutney paired up so very well with the paniyaram,but the picture of paniyaram was worstly captured by me,so here is the chutney recipe alone.I like the tomato chutney that they serve in a Chettinad restaurant here and all I could feel from the chutney is the hint of  ginger and mint.This recipe tastes very similar to that restaurant chutney.Not much of work needed for this lipsmacking chutney :).I am making this chutney tomorrow again ;).

Chettinad Tomato Chutney

Serves 2
1 medium Onion roughly chopped
2 Medium Tomato roughly chopped
1 inch Ginger
1 tbsp Coriander leaves roughly chopped
1 tbsp Mint leaves
1/8 tsp  ground Turmeric
2 Green chillies
3 tsp Chana dal
1 tsp Urad dhal
1/ 2tsp Mustard seeds
3 to 4 Red chillies
1 tbsp Oil
Salt(as per taste)
1.Heat a pan,add oil and once its hot add the Red Chillies,mustard,channa dhal,urad dhal and saute until the lentils turn golden brown.
2.Now,add the onion,mint,ginger,coriander leaves,green chilli,turmeric powder and saute until the onion turns translucent.
3.Add the tomato and saute until mushy.Once done,switch off the flame and allow it to cool.Add salt and grind it coarse.
4.Serve it with hot idli,dosas.
I added even more redchillies than the original recipe(as I purposefully wanted them to be spicy).The chillies I used ,are REAL spicy ones and the chutney was in turn very spicy.Adjust the chillies according to your taste buds.
