Onion, Coriander & Tomato Chutney

I made this for the chapatis my hubby was preparing...I made this chutney with coconut oil..emm the aroma is just so amazing...

What you need
2 tomatoes - chopped
a handful of shallots - sliced
a handful of coriander leaves - chopped coarsely
1 -2 sprigs of curry leaves
1-2 green chillies
coconut oil
salt to taste
turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1tsp fennel powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1tsp black mustard seeds


How to do
  • heat coconut oil
  • add mustard seeds, once it starts to crackle, add in cumin seeds.
  • next add in onions, fry for 1-2mins. Add salt to it too, (it helps to soften the onions fast)
  • once the onions are soft, add in tomatoes, curry leaves and chillies.
  • Add in turmeric, cumin and fennel powders, mix well
  • Add water if you find it too thick.
  • Finally add in chopped coriander leaves. Mix well and let it simmer for a few more minutes.
  • Remove from fire and let it cool and blend either coarsely or smooth paste to your preference.
Ready to serve...
