Onion-Tomato & Mint chutney

Ingredients
Onion-1
Tomato-1
Mint Leaves- a small bunch
Cilantro leaves - a small bunch (optional)
Tamarind- a tiny piece
Red chillies-4
Urad dhal-1tablespoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Grated Coconut - 3tablespoons
Salt
Oil

Method
Chop the onion and tomato into big pieces. Clean and wash the mint leaves.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds followed by urad dhal and red chillies and tamarind. Roast them without burning..

Remove them and let it cool. Add the Onion-tomato chunks in the same kadai and sauté them for 3-4 minutes. Finally add the mint & cilantro leaves and switch off the flame. They will get wilted in the heat of the pan itself.

Now combine the roasted items with salt and coconut in a mixer jar and grind it to a nice paste.
Add the onion-tomato-mint and give it a few quick pulses. Tasty chutney is ready.

You can temper it with little mustard seeds-urad dhal and curry leaves(which I haven't done while taking the picture!;) ). It goes well with Idli/dosa/Oothappam/roti.

  8. Wow! Nice to see a new cute layout here. I didn't expect that. :) The chutney looks good - I am yet to try with the addition of mint because we rarely buy it. Will try this next time we get mint.
