Thakkali Chutney | How to make Tomato Chutney

Tomato Chutney

Thakkali Chutney or Tomato Chutney is a regular one made at home for Tiffins. This version involves using just the goodness of tomato on its own, and making a thick condiment that serves as a good side dish for Dosa.

As I have said, our regular chutney most tiffins is always Peanut Chutney. We make it all through the week for something or the other. Certain dishes are always a constant and apart from it, we often make some version of Tomato chutney.

Even though I have a huge collection of chutneys that are frequently made, I feel we are little more partial to these in the family.

Today’s version involves just the tomatoes. We also have different versions including garlic or ginger. Anyway the favorite version of Tomato Chutney is one version which we love eating when mixed with rice.

Anyway coming to this version, this has a good shelf life as it is cooked in oil for a while till the oil comes out on the sides.

This is the last in the series of Condiments for BM#89 and I hope you enjoyed it.

  1. Addition of sambar powder to tomato chutney sounds new and inviting.Must be a flavorful one with all those spices in sambar powder.Finger licking chutney.

  2. Adding sambar powder must give the chutney a distinctive taste. It looks so good with dosa. Even we make different variations of tomato chutney but the one with garlic and lots of gingelly oil is our fav.

  3. I make tomato chutney but never added sambar powser to it…must be adding a unique taste to it..what is on the other side…looks tempting too

  4. That’s a simple and tasty looking chutney! Sambhar powder and tomatoes will make my husband fall in love….am trying it tomorrow!
