Tomato Chutney is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Sunday Funday. We post weekly on varying topics. This week our topic is Indian and Pakistani Recipes.
I’ve been making my own tomato chutney to go with Indian foods for quite some time now. It’s become one of my favorite chutneys, especially when served with idli or samosa, as shown in the photo.
You can serve this with a variety of appetizers or other things, such as dosa, pappadums, pakoras, or with nan or even a little on top of rice.
Not every restaurant will have it so if you want it with your home cooked foods or take-out it’s great to have on hand. It keeps a fair amount of time in the fridge, but I also think it freezes well.

I wish I would have had some of this chutney when I made my samosas.
You’ll always find tomato chutney in my fridge as it is a versatile one. We sometimes enjoy it with leftover naan or paratha for breakfast.
