You've hit upon the perfect combination of ingredients to make this the best tomato chutney I've tasted! I had it with toasted bread, and it also goes really well with idlis and dosas. One thing to remember: Remove the bay leaf before blending; stray bay leaves can really mess up a recipe!
Great taste, and perfect combination of ingredients. I just added extra brown sugar and vinigar after blending, cooked it again for 10 minutes for a thicker consistancy. Great Recipe!
