Tomato Chutney (Tamatar ki chutney)

Pickles and chutney makes your meal complete. Be it a limy green chutney or a tangy tomato chutney. I always like to eat it with every meal. When I was small, my mother used to make this for me in winters coz thats the best time as you get really nice ripe tomatoes during this season. This little sweet little spicy chutney tastes great when accompnained with parathas, pulao.
