ABOUT Restaurant style onion tomato chutney RECIPE

People who are fond of South Indian delicacies will definitely love this yummy onion tomato red chutney generally served with idly and dosa in restaurants. I too love to relish on these tangy chutney every time I make South Indian platter. These are flavour enhancer that goes well with plain dosa and idly too.
