Mint Tomato Chutney | Side dish for Idly | Onion tomato Chutney Recipe

Back home, I used to have this chutney almost every week along with hot idly and every time this was done at home they used to do double the quantity, we used to have it like kozhambu hehe... RK was never fed with this chutney before marriage (which was good for me :P) so I had the chance of introducing him to this chutney and he feel in love with it. 
Since there is no coconut in the recipe its healthy with a good punch of the mint taste. Every mint lover should try this out, you could even stock it in the fridge as it lasts for upto 10 days (if at all there is anything left). I had seen another blogger post this recipe and wanted to post my way of doing it. 


Prep & cook time ~ 15 mins
Serves ~ 2
Recipe ~ Own


Onion - 1 large, chopped
Tomato - 2 medium, chopped
Mint leaves - handful
Green chilli - 3 (adjust as per spice tolerance)
Pottukadalai / roasted gram dal - 2 tsp 
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste


- In a hot pan, heat oil, fry the onions and let it sweat, add the tomato green chilli and fry well, add the pottukadalai/ roasted gram dal and cook under closed lid for 5 mins. Once cooked add the mint leaves and give it a good mix, off the stove and let it cool down to be grind later
- Grind the ingredients into a fine paste, check for salt

Serve with hot idlies or dosa


  1. Yummy and flavorful chutney,will surely try.

  2. I really like home made chutneys... They taste so fresh and nit artificial like the stuff they sell at indian stores.
    I have made mint chutney before but not a tomato mint chutney... This sounds yummy! And would taste so good with samosas or kababs :)

  3. Delicious chutney Priya, Love that mint and tomato combo.

  4. This is another nice blog that I have come across.
    Chutney too looks great.
