A Chutney is a savory, Sweet or spicy condiment, made usually from,fruits, Vegetables, nuts or herbs. It is usually served along side a snack . It is also served with dishes such as Idli, Dosas and Uthappam in South India, In north India it is part of a regular meal, In western India sweet Chutney made from raw fruits like Mango are popular, east of India also has its version of sweet chutneys made with raw mango, Olives etc which is served with papad( lentil fritters).

The best part about chutney’s is that they are so versatile,they elevate the main dish altogether. Here is Raw Tomato or green Tomato chutney that is spicy and tangy. It goes perfectly well with Rice,Roti, Dosas and more. Green tomatoes are sour and impart a good flavour to the chutney. They are also high in Vitamin C, therefore they tick the healthy box too.

Now add salt and continue to saute until the skin of the tomatoes begins to peel, and they turn a little tender. (I have used a mix of green and red chillies(fresh ones))
  4. Cool the sauteed tomatoes, and add them to the blender in which the ground powder is there. Add the grated coconut, followed by the tamarind paste . Blend to a smooth paste. (equivalent amount of tamarind pulp can be used, if not the paste)
