Onion 🧅 and tomato 🍅 chutney.

This tangy and hot onion and tomato chutney will go well with idly, dosa or even Pongal .

It is not only good for breakfast but can also be used for rice with some ghee as a good lunch.

You can add the coconut 🥥 or you can skip the part of you are allergic to it. By adding coconut 🥥you will get a nice texture.

Make sure the onions 🧅are cooked and tomato🍅 is red so that it gives a tangy flavor. If you are using tangy tomatoes you can skip ⏭ the tamarind part. I’m a spicy lover so i add more red chilies and make it hotter.
