Tomato Chutney Recipe

This Tomato chutney Recipe is my mother's recipe. It is one of my favorite chutney recipes. It has a lovely red color and great taste.

This chutney is good to serve with rice as well as idli, chapati, dosa or any other type of roti.

You can also use it as a sandwich spread for breakfast or when you make it as a snack. It will keep good for a week or more, it is a great convenience.
