TOMATO KARA /SPICY CHUTNEY
Tomato spicy chutney is a no onion chutney with the aromatic fried Chana dal, red chillies and a hint of garlic. This can be very well accompanied with soft idlis or spongy uthappams/ dosa/set dosa/ rice roti/ puffed rice dosa/oats dosa. This spicy chutney has all the goodness of Chana dal & garlic. If you add fried Chana dal it adds extra flavour and taste to the chutney. If you want to add a tablespoon of coconut then it’s fine & good & garlic can also be avoided. So, this chutney can be used on vrad days as no onion & garlic chutney. But I like this with garlic which gives an unique flavor. Sometimes we have this chutney with bread toast.
