Easy, Delicious Onion Tomato Chutney served as a side dish with dosa, idlis Or chapati! Onion Tomato Chutney Recipe is easy and simple to make. I had this chutney at my friends place last week. I just relished the chutney so took the recipe but modified with my version. Hence made my own version. I loved this and looking forward to make some more.
This Onion Tomato Chutney Recipe tastes great with rice, roti, chapati Or pav. I can eat them with anything they just taste fab. I would love to come up with more simple, yet healthy comfort food recipe.

Also it’s good for you and your body to eat healthy food why not??? there is nothing wrong in it. Sometimes it’s okay to indulge in junk food too.
Best part of this dish is you could make and store in fridge. This should last for 3 days. Just thaw and eat before eating Or microwave.
