Tomato Dal Chutney

Tomato Dal Chutney / Tomato Dal Dip

Tomato Dal Chutney is my all time favourite for dosa. This is a versatile chutney / dip. This tomato dal chutney goes well with chapathi, puri, idli, dosa, idiyappam and uthappam. It can also be served mixed in hot rice. It can be used as a dip for any veggie and tortilla chips. This tomato dal chutney is a new twist to the regular tomato chutney that I always make. Tomato Dal Chutney can be used as a spread over dosa for lunch box and the dosa wrap will remain moist till the lunch hour. All the ingredients are fried and ground to paste, so they will not get spoiled for hours. You can also sauté / steam or grill any veggies and roll it in the dosa / chapathi wrap spread with tomato dal chutney.
