Tomato Chutney Recipe (without onion)-Thakkali Chutney Recipes

Tomato Chutney is one of my favorites and you will find many different versions of tomato chutney in this space. This is one of the easiest chutney and goes well with most breakfast recipes. It can be used as a spread for sandwich and bread toast also. When I was young, my mom used to spread this chutney on both sides of the bread, toast it on tawa with a little ghee and serve hot. I love it so much. It tastes very delicious.Try it and see. Kids will love it. You can try it with this onion tomato chutney also. Today let us learn how to prepare Tomato chutney without onions (South Indian) following this quick recipe.
