Chutney Lovers

We love chutney with every dish, so thought of making some without using coconut or least coconut. This is one of them & will keep posting more as i will make them.

Grapes Chutney(will upload the pictures soon)

You need:
Grapes 1 Cup
Green chillies 4 (or as per taste)
Coriander leaves 1/2 Cup
Ginger 1/2 inch
Salt As per taste

To Do:
Take all ingredients in a mixer & Grind them to a smooth paste.
Serve it in decorative transparent bowl with Suffed Idli's or Potato sanwidch Bhaji.

Heres one more Chutney, its Tomato Chutney.

Tomato Chutney

You need:
Tomatoes -4

Green chillies- 3 to 4 (according to how spicy they are)
Peanuts- 1/4 cup (roasted or store bought)
Oil - 1 tbsp
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Asafordia - pinch
Salt to taste

To Do:
Chop tomatoes roughly in cubes.
Take oil in kadai when is hot add jeera, asafordia & slit green chillies.
Add chopped tomatoes & let it cook till the rawness goes.
Let it cool & then grind in mixie with peanuts & salt.
Check the seasonning & adjust accordingly.
Enjoy with hot rice or roti or even bread.

There is a slight variation in the above Tomato chutney, for those who do not prefer Peanuts.
Instead of Peanuts use roasted & powdered Seaseme seeds.
Add it only after grinding the tomatoes.
If you like rough texture in chutney, do not grind just smash it with smasher.

I would love to enter this chutney for RP's JFI of April- Tomaotes.

I made Tomato Chutney last night! It turned out really very well. My hubby said, he had had this chutney once in Chennai- the restaurant had served this chutney with Dosa.

My compliments to you for great recipes. And do tell me if this recipe is actually South Indian.
