Tomato Chutney

     At times I get these urges to make dosas.  My favorite is masala dosa but since its heavy and I am trying very hard to cut down on carbohydrates I will have to settle for a plain dosas.  However, I still wanted to do something special and make this a little more exciting.  What do I do? I made some tomato chutney.  I hope you will enjoy it.

Ingredients:
Gingelli oil                                            - 1 Tbspn
Chana Dal (dry split chickpea)             -  1/2 Tbspn
Urad Dal (                                           - 1 tspn
Onions                                                - chopped fine about 1 cup
Garlic                                                  - 2 cloves plump, chopped fine
Tomato                                               - 1 medium size chopped fine
Chili Powder                                       - 1/2 Tbspn (its spicy so go easy on it if you like it milder)
Tamarind                                            - 1/2 tspn (a few pinches
Salt                                                    - 1/4 - 1/2 tspn (use as per taste)
Coriander Leaves                               - 4-5 sprigs finely chopped

Method:
1. Heat oil in a tawa and fry the chana dal and urad dal
2. Once the dal turn golden add the onions and fry till translucent
3. Add garlic and saute a minute followed with tomato
4. Once the tomato has been sauted add all the chili powder
5. Turn the heat off, let it cool grind in a blender with the tamarind and coriander leaves to a fine paste
Note:
You can use this as a dip or on dosas.
