Tomato chutney is a very simple and easy recipe that you can prepare in minutes. It forms an excellent side dish and can be teamed up with idlis, dosas, pulao, parathas and pakoras. The small amount of sugar added to this dish balances out the sourness of tomatoes and gives it a delicious tangy flavor. It is also a rich source of Vitamin A.
