  • 4 tomatoes (chopped)
  • 3 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 8-10 fresh curry leaves
  • 2 slit green chillies
  • salt - to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste

For garnishing:

  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves


  • Firstly, take a sauce pan or a wok.
  • Add oil and heat it.
  • Add cumin seeds, mustard seeds and let them pop up.
  • Add fresh curry leaves, saute well.
  • Add the slit green chillies and saute well.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, mix well.
  • Add the dry spices such as salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, mix well.
  • Cover the lid and cook the tomatoes for 4-5 minutes on low flame.
  • Remove the lid, give a stir.
  • Cover the lid again and cook the tomatoes until they turn soft and mushy for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and stir the gravy.
  • Once the tomatoes cook well, switch off the flame.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve the gravy chutney with rice.



  • Always cook the gravy on low flame as the chutney might burn if cooked on high flame.
  • Here, I have added green chillies but dried red chillies too can be used in place of green chillies.
  • Other ingredients such as onion seeds/kalonji can be used while giving tempering to get a good aroma to the chutney recipe.
