Tomato Mint Chutney (Thakkali Pudina Chutney) is a super quick chutney for idli/dosa. Though Idli/Dosa Podi is a compulsory accompaniment in my family, they do not say no to this tomato mint chutney. This is a no coconut version. Do my full chutney collection HERE

This is Chotu’s favourite. All he wants is either Sambar or this Chutney. 🙂

Now to the recipe.

  • Oil – 1tbsp + 1 tbsp
  • Salt – as needed


  • Heat pan with oil and roast the red chillies & keep aside. Next roast the urid dal till they are light brown. Keep this aside. Finally in the same pan saute onions for a few mins, followed by tomatoes. When they are mushy add mint leaves, stir and switch off the flame. Let it cool.

  • Once it cools grind all the roasted ingredients except urid dal into a paste. Finally add urid dal and grind in pulse mode just once or twice so that we get a coarse textured chutney. Heat pan with oil and temper with mustard seeds. Add the tomato mint chutney to this and boil for a min or two.

That’s it. Yummy tomato chutney is ready. Serve it with steaming hot idli or dosa.

My favourite is with fluffy, spongy dosa.

  1. You can add garlic along with chopped onions and saute.
  2. You can add coriander leaves too, but I prefer to keep the mint flavour separate.
