Tomato Peanut Chutney

Recipe for Tomato Peanut Chutney

Tomato peanut chutney is tangy chutney made with tomatoes as the main ingredient. Tomatoes are slow-cooked till they soften, and their flavours are completely infused. Then they are combined with roasted peanuts, which gives the chutney a bit of a crunch and a nutty texture. This chutney pairs well with any south Indian breakfast, such as Idli, Dosa, etc. Check out my MY Kitchen page for south Indian breakfast recipes with which you can enjoy this chutney.
