Onion tomato chutney recipe with coconut, recipe with step by step pictures and video. I have posted onion tomato chutney recipe very long back using chutney dal. Sometimes a small variation in the ingredient will give a twist in the taste. I wanted to try the onion tomato chutney with the addition of coconut and tried it last week for breakfast. Everyone at home liked the taste and personally i find it nice and different from the usual one. So i thought i will share the easy onion tomato recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen.

Generally idlis are not much liked by kids at home. So i always end up making dosai only. But they all love Ragi dosa, whole wheat dosa, barley dosa too. So always i don’t make the dosa batter using idli rice. Usually molgapodi will be there available at home all the time. And kids don’t bother if i don’t make chutney for dosa. But personally for me, i love dosa | idli with chutney or sambar. So if i have time i will make Sambar or else i make Chutney only. One of my favorite chutney recipe is the simple Madurai street style Poondu chutney which i learnt from my mom. Even now i ask my mom to make this for me when i visit her.
