Tomato Chutney for Idlis

Tomato chutney for Idlis:

This is a very simple chutney; gets done fast and tastes yummy with idlis; Can also be eaten with rice or rotis. Long time back, I had it at a friend’s place in Chennai. Made the recipe from the taste I remembered all these years. It is one of those recipes you cannot go wrong with.

Tomato chutney

·         Heat oil in a pan, add ½ tsp. of rayi, Jeera, and methi seeds. Put 2 nos. garlic pods and fry.
