Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

Green Tomato Chutney

A Tangy, Spicy, and Delicious Side Dish

Green tomatoes have plenty of nutrients in them. As they are tangier than ripe tomatoes, they pair very well with the spices and salt used to make a chutney. You can use this raw tomato chutney as a side dish for rice, roti, idli, dosa, etc.

I used some roasted peanuts along with the grated coconut and other spices in this chutney. This chutney is spicy and aromatic. You can leave this sauce unrefrigerated for about a day. You can store it in a refrigerator and use it for two more days.

On to the recipe!
