Today I prepared special tomato coconut chutney. This version of tomato chutney is very simple and quick to make. This chutney is my Amma’s kaipakkuvam. I make this chutney often, in slightly large quantities, and it comes very handy during rushed mornings. It serves as a great side dish for idli dosai and even roti! Tastes best and It’s one of my favourite chutneys and is an amazing combo with rice and chuttaAppalam/Papad.
