Tomato Mint Chutney|Thakkali Pudina Chutney

Tomato mint chutney is very easy and simple to make and it tastes amazing with dosa or idli for the breakfasts, I sometimes use it as a spread for the sandwiches and wraps, it has a slight tangy and sweet flavor to it because of the tomatoes. You can add tamarind pulp to the chutney for the extra tanginess if you prefer. I got this recipe from my husband uday 🙂 and here are the ingredients and the recipe details.

  • 4-5 Tomatoes

  • Separate the mint leaves from the bunch and give a quick rinse under running water.
