Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml
  • 2 medium firm green tomatoes (should make 1.25 cups when chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon roasted peanuts
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 4-5 green chilies (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (coriander leaves)
  • 2 stalks curry leaves
  • 1 teaspoon jaggery
  • 2 teaspoon oil – divided use
  • salt (adjust to taste)
  1. Dry roast the peanuts till golden brown, keep aside. You can use store bought roasted peanuts as well.

  2. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to the same pan, add the green chilies and let them roast for 30 seconds or until you see blisters on their skin (you can also slit the chilies so they don’t pop)

  3. Then add curry leaves and coriander leaves and fry for a minute until the leaves wilt.Keep aside.

  4. Add another teaspoon of oil to the same pan, add sliced raw green tomato and cook until the tomatoes are charred and nicely cooked.

  5. In a blender take roasted green chillies, curry leaves & coriander leaves mixture ,garlic ,jaggery ,roasted peanuts ,salt and blend into a coarse paste without adding water. Then add roasted tomato and blend to a coarse or smooth paste without adding any water as your preference.

  6. Raw Tomato chutney is ready and can be served with dosa, idli or chapati.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can add some roasted sesame seeds in this chutney too.
  2. Increase or decrease the green chillies according to your spice level.
  3. Do not skip adding peanuts they give body to the chutney as well as enhance the taste.Dont add more you will end up with peanut chutney
  4. I have not added tamarind in this recipe since the green tomatoes i used were tart. If you want, you can add a small piece of tamarind.
  5. If you dont like garlic ,you can skip and add 1/4 teaspoon of hing(asafoetida) instead
