Tomato Ginger Chutney | Side dish for idli dosa

Tomato Ginger Chutney

Tomato Ginger chutney, is an easy side dish for pesarattu, idli and dosa. Recently we visited a restaurant in Singapore. It is an Andhra restaurant and a friend recommended to try the MLA pesarattu in that restaurant. They served a tomato chutney with this pesarattu and it tasted very nice. Generally i don't prefer ginger much in my cooking but this chutney i liked very much. Somehow managed to find the ingredients present in the restaurant chutney and attempted at home today. It turned out well and tasted similar to the Tomato Ginger chutney we had in the restaurant.

    1. Just omit the peanuts if you don't like it.
