How to make Tomato Chutney Recipe
To begin making the Tomato Chutney recipe, add oil in a wide pan and roast the channa dal and chillies and add it into the mixer along with the coconut and set aside.
In the same pan, add a little oil and add the chopped onions and cook until the onions turn soft and translucent.
Once they turn translucent, add the tomatoes and cook until they are soft and lose some of their juices. Set aside and let it cool completely.
