Tomato-Onion Chutney

A gorgeous hue of red-orange:)
I am so used to eating the usual coconut-cilantro chutney, that when I first ate this chutney, I fell in love with it. Now I make it almost eveytime I make idlis and dosas. Each time I make it, I end up licking my fingers and spoon while cleaning up. Each time I make this chutney, my son knows its either idli or dosa day:)
1 1/2 red tomatoes
1/2 onion
5 red chillies
little tamarind soaked in water
1 tbs chana dal
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
for tempering:
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 sprig of curry leaves
Shallow fry all the above ingredients till the raw smell is gone. Grind in blender without adding any water when cold. Then temper with hing, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Serve with idlis or dosas.
