Onion Tomato Mint Chutney

One more Chutney Recipe that goes into my collection of recipes! A very close Friend of mine, Vidya who lives in Chennai is the master of her recipes.A long story , cut short  – We are more than Friends !!! She knows her recipes in and out and her proportions very well. This recipe comes from her culinary corner and it came to my rescue one of the evenings when I wanted to make some different from my regular chutneys. During our regular conversation, I was asking her about the sides for dosa’s and idly’s .In a couple of hours, I see a mail with recipes of chutneys in pointers and i totally appreciate the pointers and the proportions to make them 🙂 Mwaah !! Thank you honey!

The C3 – Coconut Curry leaves Chutney – Accompaniment for Dosa’s /Idli’s

 
Chutney’s are such a fab accompaniment. It jazz’s up the food in minutes.. A total highlight along with papad’s or popadam’s served as starters.. or along with a curry .. Its a misconception that a chutney is a spicy side accompaniment. Instead I call chutney as a companion to any bland dish because its flavour packed in that tiny little bowl served.

Any South Indian home must be having Dosa’s – the lentil pancake and Idly’s – the lentil doughnuts for breakfast .They are served with an ala carte of chutneys if you have guests .. lol . I mean it.. When you are by yourself at home, we mostly serve with one chutney two chutney’s at the max and along with dosa milagaipodi as its always readily available in the pantry.  If not chutney’s , a seasoned potato masala is made and its wholesome !!

This chutney post is quite dear to me .. In the first place ,this is for my own reference. Secondly.. I have managed to get the fitting taste I have been looking for… Voilà!!  South Indian Chutney’s are not in my comfort zone cooking at all…  I need to practically search any bits and bobs that I have pen down from home… One among those kind is this chutney. My dear sis – in – law is quite an expert at this.. and I tweeted her recipe and  prepared to suit my palate…  They are a great side for Dosa’s ( Lentil Pancake) & Idly’s( Lentil Doughnuts)

Can I say my wish came true gazing at an apple tree…
My neighbour across the fence grows the best British cooking apples  – Bramley apples.. Shear Green apples ..We have seen them grown and been plucked too.. Wished we could hit a stone and grab one…
Looks like we had a lucky charm that day …

Our neighbours… buzzed saying.. “ Excuse Me .. We are plucking the apple from the tree and will be selling over the weekend at the church “.

One eyebrow raised ,I said in a lowtone ..“ Oh ok… “

Neighbours – “ Am not asking you to buy them….

Would you mind having some of them ?? “
