Tomato Coriander Leaves Chutney


Red Ripe Tomatoes - 4 to 5 ( Chopped )

1 small bunches Coriander Leaves (Remove Stem as much as possible and chop the leaves)

Oil - 1 tablespoon

Mustard Sseeds - 1 teaspoon

Urud Dal - 1 tablespoon

Cumin Seeds - 2 teaspoons

Asafoetida powder

Turmeric Powder

Red Chilli Powder

Dhania Powder - 1 teaspoon


No water required while frying or while grinding. The juice from tomato is enough.


Heat oil in a Kadai and add the Mustard Seeds, when it sputters, add the Urud Dal, Cumin Seeds.

Add the Chopped Tomatoes. Fry for a couple of minutes and add Turmeric Powder, Dhania powder, Asafoetida powder, Red Chilli Powder and salt. Fry until the Tomatoes become tender.

Add the Chopped Coriander Leaves and fry for 4 to 5 minutes.

Cool down and grind to chutney consistency. Sauteing the Ground Chutney is optional. The taste is enhanced when the chutney is sauted again for 5 minutes.
Serve with Iddli/Dosa or Rice. Tastes really good with curd rice.

Usha: Thanks for dropping by. Yes, the combo is terrific.

Nalini: It tastes awesome when we fry it a little more. Also, please do not use oil while frying for the second time. The main idea is to have a chutney with no coconut and not much oil. Thanks for dropping by.

hi Mythreyee, how hv u been? i tried the chutney and it turned out very tasty :) i had tasted something similar in a restaurant w/ dosa & was looking for it, ur chutney came very close to it. btw mine turned out orangish with green flecks, maybe coriander bunch was small??
do u scoop out the tomato seeds? i used vine ripe tomatoes, which ones do u use? thanks for the rcp!

Mythreyee said...

I used Roma tomatoes. I don't scoop the seeds. It is orangish because the tomatoes were a little in excess. But the taste will be good. Try to add more coriander and grind it to a paste. It will work. Thanks for trying my recipe and I am glad you liked it Richa.
