    Tomato chutney without garlic or onion | no onion no garlic recipe
    Some do not like the flavour of onion and garlic .  There are also some people who avoid onion and garlic during festivals  like Varalakshmi Vratham, Navratri or  when they perform Vrat. I have used local tomatoes and diced them into small pieces so that it is easy to cook.
    Take urad dhal - 2 teaspoons , few dried red chillies , asafoetida ( hing or perungayam ) and roast in a little  oil  .  Remove them and allow them to cool.
    Meanwhile , add the tomatoes to the vessel after adding oil and cook them.  Add a little turmeric  powder and salt
    Once they are cool , transfer the dhal  , chillies and tomatoes to a mixer and grind into a fine paste
    Saute with mustard and urad dhal.    If you want flavour of asafoetida add some more.  Tomato chutney for idli , dosa side dish
