Onion Tomato Chutney

Onion tomato chutney is a popular south Indian side dish.

Onion tomato chutney is very easy to prepare and requires only few ingredients. Dosa and this chutney will be enough for a good breakfast.I would like to serve this chutney along with idli,sambar and coconut chutney.

This spicy onion tomato chutney goes well with Dosa,Idli,Appam etc…


1 medium sized onion
2 medium sized tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic(optional)
1 small piece of tamarind
1 spn. of coconut oil.
1/2 spn. of chilli powder
Salt as required

Onion tomato chutney preparation steps

Step 01

Grind onion,tomatoes,garlic and tamarind to a smooth fine paste.

Step 02

Heat coconut oil in a pan.Add chilli powder(flame should be low or you can switch off the flame.Otherwise the chilli powder may burn)

Step 03

Add onion tomato paste.Add salt and mix well.

Step 04

Cook the chutney for 4-5 minute in low flame.

Step 05

When oil starts coming out of the chutney,switch off the flame.

Your tasty and spicy tomato chutney is now ready to serve. Let me know your comments and suggestions also how it went for you.


1. You can also use any oil for making this chutney but nothing beats coconut oil.
2. Take care of the heat of oil when you add chilli powder.If you are making this chutney first time,better switch off the flame when it is hot and add chilli powder.Again switch on and add onion tomato paste(First time I did like this)
