Onion and Tomato Chutney

on November 8, 2012

Onion and Tomato Chutney

Onion and Tomato Chutney is a great accompaniment for Rice and Lentil crepes (Indian Dosa) or as a spread on sandwiches. Sweet and sharp onions, tangy tomatoes, the zing from the ginger, and the heat from the dried red Indian chillies make it a very flavorful chutney.

For the Chutney

Chop 4 medium onions, 2 ripe medium tomatoes and 1 inch piece of ginger. Heat about 1 T of oil in a pan. Season the oil with 2 t mustard seeds. When the seeds begin to sputter add 1 t of split urad dal and fry to a golden brown. Add a pinch of asafoetida, 2 dried whole red chillies (Indian) and curry leaves and saute for 10 seconds. Add the ginger and chopped onions and cook on medium flame till the onions become soft and slightly golden. Add the tomatoes and cook for 10-15 minutes stirring often. Add salt to taste. Let this cool and blend adding a little water if necessary. Serve with Rice and Lentil Crepes (Indian Dosa).
