Tomato and Onion chutney/gojju

Greetings to all you readers out there... :)
It has been quite a long time since I've posted any of my cooking experiences :) Today I prepared one of my favorite side dishes i.e. Tomato and onion chutney or you may call it gojju in terms of Kannada. It is a tangy recipe that tickles my taste buds :) I love it in spite of its simplicity in its ingredients.
The recipe goes as follows.

Ingredients: (For three people)

2 medium sized onions
2 medium sized tomatoes
3-4 Green chilies
2 tsp red chilly powder
½ tsp garam masala
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp sugar
Salt to taste


Vegetable oil (For seasoning and shallow frying)
½ tsp Mustard seeds
½ tsp Cumin seeds
½ tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves


Chop the green chilies, onions and tomatoes. Heat 2 tsp of oil. Add urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Let the mustard seeds finish their popping. Now add chopped onions and the green chilies. Fry them until they become soft and lightly brown. Add the tomatoes. And leave it to cook for 5 minutes on a medium flame and close the vessel with a lid.
After 5 minutes, add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, sugar and salt. Mix them well and let it cook for about 10 minutes on a medium flame. After its cooked, serve hot with chapathis or you can have it with rice or curd rice.

Try it out :) 

Till then Happy cooking :)


  1. Traditional way uses Jaggery instead of sugar.

  2. @Bhat Thank you so much for being here :) Yeah I did try with jaggery. It tasted better :)
