Onion-Tomato Chutney for Dosa

Sunday breakfast is generally dosa.  Any kind. Dosa, Adai, Uttapam, Pesarattu, Rava Dosa.  A tradition from years.  But ever since my sister in law had a bumper crop of coconut, we have had an overdose of it.  So V wanted a chutney without coconut and talked of this tomato chutney that was served in restaurants.  And the google search led to Jeyashri's Kitchen and we had a yummy chutney with nice crisp dosa.

Onion - 1 large
Tomatoes - 2 medium
Garlic - 3 pods
Puffed chick pea or puttunalu pappu  - 2 tbsp
Red chilies - 4-5
Tamarind paste - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves -few
Mustard - for seasoning.
Salt to taste.

Slice the onion.
Chop the tomatoes
Heat a wok, add oil, and first fry the chilies and garlic till it browns slightly
Add sliced onion. Allow it to turn golden brown.
Followed by the chopped tomatoes, till they turn mushy.
Add the puffed chick pea, and switch off the stove.
Also the tamarind paste.
Cool and make to a nice fine paste along with salt.

Add water if you wish as per consistency desired.  ( I kept it slightly thick)

Season with mustard and curry leaves.

The chutney was excellent and was a nice change from the coconut chutney.  We enjoyed it so much that we did not have the spice powder mixed in oil along with the dosa.
