typically, a tomato chutney is prepared from just ripe tomatoes. however, some even add onions as well while frying to make it more acidic and spicy. according to me it is a totally a different recipe and it is known as tomato onion chutney. in addition, fresh coconut or desiccated coconut is added while grinding. adding coconut would certainly enhance the taste of tomato chutney, but reduces the shelf life of this chutney.

tomato chutney

while chutney recipes are heavily used in india and in its cuisine, but ironically it is believed to be english origination. however in another theory it highlighted that chutney was originated in north india. perhaps the later theory is more convincing as it could have been derived from hindi word ‘chatni’ or ‘chatna’. it literally meaning to lick or it could be lip smacking sound while consuming a tangy dish.
