Easy Tomato Chutney Recipe for Idli


  • Big Onion - 2 small size
  • Tomato - 2 small size
  • Red Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp - 1 tsp according to your taste
  • Salt - As required

  • To Temper:

  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 3/4 tsp
  • Urad dal seeds - 3/4 tsp
  • Curry Leaves - Few
  • Hing - A pinch


1. Chop the onions and tomatoes roughly as shown in the picture.

2. Grind both of them together in a mixer. Do not add water. Grind them to a smooth paste.

3. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Let it splutter. Add urad dal, curry leaves and hing.

4. Once the urad dal starts turning into brown color. Add the ground smooth paste in the pan.

5. Add red chilli powder and salt. Add 50 ml water. Mix well.

6. Stir it occasionally and allow it to boil for 5 minutes. By this time, the color of the red tomato chutney starts changing to bright red color.

7. Switch off the stove and serve Tomato Onion Red Chutney with idli or dosa.

My notes:

1. Tomato Onion red chutney tastes great when you have with sesame oil/gingelly oil.

2. Kashmiri chilli powder gives bright red color to the Tomato Onion Red Chutney.

3. If you are making the Tomato Onion Red Chutney for 2 people and your onion and tomato are larger in sizes, you can prepare the chutney with one each.
