Gather ripe tomatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, and spices

Chop tomatoes and onions finely for a chunky texture

Sauté chopped onions, garlic, and ginger until golden.

Add tomatoes, cook until soft, and spices like cumin, mustard seeds, and red chili powder.

Simmer the mixture until it thickens, stirring occasionally.

Sweeten with jaggery or sugar to balance the tanginess.

Adjust seasoning with salt and a hint of tanginess with tamarind.

Cool the chutney before blending for a smoother consistency (optional).

Store in airtight jars; refrigerate for prolonged freshness.

Serve as a condiment with dosas, bread, or as a flavorful dip
