Tomato Verusanaga Pachadi-Tomato Peanut chutney

Growing up this chutney was my favorite accompaniment to dosas or idlis made with roasted peanuts and tomato.

Preparation Time:25 minutes

4 tomatoes
1 cup peanuts
6 green chilis
1/8th teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon tamarind paste
4 dry red chilis split to halves
salt to taste
4 teaspoons oil
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 stem fresh curry leaves
1 teaspoon urad dal
1 teaspoon chana dal

1.Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a pan and roast the peanuts and keep aside.

2.In the same pan add 1 teaspoon oil and roast the green chilies and tomatoes until they are soft.
3.In a grinder jar take the roasted peanuts, tomato, green chilies, tamarind paste an salt and make a coarse-smooth paste.
4.In a pan add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil, add the chana dal and urad dal and let brown lightly. Add the mustard, cumin, turmeric and curry leaves and let them splutter. Turn off the stove and add them to the ground mixture of peanuts.

This goes well with breakfast items like dosas or idlis.
