What I love about South Indian chutneys (as well as the taste) is that you can create a chutney out of any left over veggie in the fridge. Today it is green tomatoes – half a dozen that haven’t been used during the week. They are quickly sauteed until soft and then pureed with onion and chilli. Simple – in fact much simpler than many other similar chutneys. But – Delicious.
Eat with rice or with other Indian dishes, or use it as a great sandwich spread – layer sourdough bread with slices of red tomatoes, roasted eggplant, basil and feta. Divine. Try it with tortilla or corn chips too.
