Tomato-Mint Chutney
Best Combo dipper for tiffins

Tomato mint chutney is simple flavorful chutney used as dipping for any tiffins like dosas,idli,etc.Ripe juice tomato with strong flavor mint leaves with a twist of spicy green chilies together blended to a coarse paste and finally tempering gives nice aroma.

Tomato - 3 
Mint leaves - 12
Garlic pod - 1 (medium)
Green chilies - 4-5(adjust)
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4tsp
Urad dal/minapappu - 1/4tsp
Chana dal - 1/4tsp
Red chili - 1
Hing - pinch of
Curry leaves - 5

1. Take a pan add oil after heated add 1 tsp of cumin seeds after they splutter add garlic pod and green chilies.saute them for 1min

2. Add chopped tomatoes(i like to chop them into big cubes).

3. Cook it until the rawness of tomato disappears and the water evaporates (approx 7-8 mts). 

4. Add Mint leaves and cook for 2mins.Remove and let it cool.

5. Take the whole mixture into blender and blend it into a paste.Add required salt to the paste.

6. Take a small pan add oil after heating add mustard seeds after they splutter add urad dal,chana dal and saute them for a while and add dry red chili curry leaves a finally hing.After 30sec add the whole tempering to the paste.
Chutney is ready to serve.

  • You can add very small tamarind to give sourness.depends on the tomato.
  • You can replace coriander leaves in place of mint leaves to give different taste.But add more coriander leaves compared to mint.Bcoz mint have strong flavor rather than coriander.
  • While you are blending use big blender bowl (depends on your quantity)Because to make paste it should need space other wise it will split all around.
