3 different South Indian style Chutneys

Onion Tomato chutney is a nice tangy and spicy chutney served with dosas and Idlis. I love this chutney as part of my sandwiches too..:p
This chutney has amazing flavour of tamarind that goes well with idlis and dosas.

Take a pan, on medium flame heat mustard seeds till they splutter. Once done add curry leaves and onions. Let the onion cook for a minute. Once done, add tomatoes along with salt and 2-3 tbsp of water. Let everything cook for 2 minutes.
