chutneys are commonly made in every indian home. so there are many varieties of chutney. along with the famous coconut chutney, even veggies and fruits are used to make chutneys.

this tomato chutney is one such variety inspired from the south indian cuisine. apart from the tangy taste of the tomatoes, there is one more ingredient in this chutney which gives a distinct warm aroma and flavor to the chutney – cloves.

i just added two cloves and found it gave a really good strong aroma to the chutney. you can also add one clove to make its flavor aroma less dominant in the chutney. on refrigerating the chutney the aroma does mellow down.

the tomato chutney is also a no onion no garlic recipe. though if you want you can add onions as well as garlic.

this chutney pairs extremely well with idli, dosa or vadai varieties. you can even serve them with pakoras.
