Tomato Onion Chutney

Tomato onion chutney is my favorite among all chutneys. I call it red chutney. I never get bored of it. Easy to prepare and tastes yummy with many dishes.


Tomato  Onion Chutney:

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Serves : 3

Recipe Category: Chutney


Tomato – 3

Onion – 3

Red Chilli – 2

Salt – as needed

Sugar – a pinch (optional)

To temper:

Oil – 1 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

Hing – a generous pinch

Channa dal –  1/2 tsp


  • Chop onion and tomato into big cubes and add into a blender, along with red chilli. Grind to a smooth paste without adding water


  • Add oil to a pan and after the oil is hot, temper with the items given under ‘To temper’. Pour the ground paste and add salt. Mix well


  • Cook in medium flame for 15 mins or until the chutney reduces to half, and gets the desired consistency

ImageMy Notes:

  • Instead of grinding and cooking onion and tomato, can even cook and then grind
