Fresh Tomato Chutney

Updated: Apr 30, 2020

My husband suggested that maybe I should post the recipe for this tomato chutney as I have mentioned this chutney in several posts. We make this so often in our house that it didn't occur to me to post a recipe to be honest. I don't know what makes a chutney a chutney but that is what we call a basic uncooked tomato and onion mix in our house. It is almost like a pico de gallo. Almost. It is very easy to make and the simple and fresh flavors of tomatoes, onions and cilantro accent almost any Indian dish. I would think this would go well with a diverse range of ethnic dishes too actually. Especially spice-heavy dishes.

This is a very common side dish/ condiment and almost everyone makes this in our community. It goes well with dhals, curries and heavy meat dishes. Anything that needs a fresh element really. See image below for serving suggestion (does not have cilantro because I didn't feel like chopping any. Oops). So easy to make and so tasty!



-1 ripe tomato diced

-diced onions (3/4 the amount of diced tomatoes)

-handful of chopped cilantro

-salt to taste


1. Dice onions and tomatoes. Amount of onion should be at least 3/4 the amount of diced tomatoes. Don't want it to be too onion-y but if you like more onions go for it!

2. Chop and add cilantro. Mix well. Can be stored in fridge until ready for serving.

3. Add salt right before serving.

4. Enjoy with curries, dhals and meat dishes!
