Tomato & curry leaves chutney

Tomato curry chutney is a yummy tangy chutney. It tastes good with idli, dosa, parantha, pakodi, Sabudana vada, etc. If you want to be a lil sweet then add jaggery too. It could be a nice replacement for ketchup. You can experiment a lot with chutneys. This recipe is without onion and garlic. If you want to use it for fasting then don't add turmeric powder and replace salt with sendha namak.
Try this recipe, experiment with it and don't forget to share your experience with me :)
