|1 no||Tomato (big)|
|6 nos||Garlic (crushed)|
|7 nos||Dry red chillies|
|Salt (as per taste)|
|30 nos||Shallots (sambar onions)|
Peel the shallots. Wash the shallots and Tomato. Cut the tomato into two halves. In your Mixie jar, add the shallots, tomato pieces, red chillies and salt and grind to an almost smooth paste (Not very coarse, but not too smooth either).
Heat a Kadai. Add oil, splutter mustard, split black gram. Add the ground paste to the kadai and mix so that the paste mixes well with the seasoning. After 2 minutes, add the crushed garlic. Cook in medium flame till the raw smell goes. After about 5 minutes, the chutney will start sticking to the kadai. Keep stirring for a few more minutes till it thickens a bit and releases aroma. Remove from fire and serve with hot idlis / dosai.
