How To Prepare Tomato Cilantro Chutney:

  • Dice onions into medium-sized squares.
  • Heat 2 tsp of oil in a kadai, saute red chillies for a few seconds and remove onto a plate.  In the same kadai, add onions and saute until onions turn transparent and remove.
  • Add whole tomatoes (do not cut them) and fry till they turn soft on all sides and the skin of the tomatoes change color (do not burn them).  Remove onto a plate and let them cool down and then cut them into medium-sized pieces.
