Tomato chutney


I was looking for a chutney without coconut to go with the pesarattu and I found this recipe. Since it does not have coconut ,it should have a longer shelf life.
Ingredients:
Chana dal-1 tbsp
Urad dal-1tbsp
Curry leaves- 1 sprig
Whole red chillis-4
Asafoetida/Hing-a pinch
Shallots/ sambar  onions -10
Tomato-2
Coriander leaves- 1 tbsp
Tamarind- 1 small piece(optional)
Salt
Coconut oil-1 tbsp
Method:
1. In a tbsp of coconut oil, fry the dals and when it turns brown, add the whole red chillis and fry for a minute.
2. Add the shallots and curry leaves and fry till it turns brownish.
3. Next add the tomatoes and mix for 2 minutes . Lastly add the coriander leaves, hing , tamarind  and salt and turn the heat off.
4. Let it cool and grind it in a mixie without adding water. Serve it with idly-dosa or pesarattu .
