Ingredients- Tomato Chutney

Andhra is known for its chutneys or pachchadi. Pachchadis are made in every Andhra home. I often had my Andhra friends at work place bringing home made chutneys for me. Of late I have started making a couple of them myself. Here is my all time favorite Tangy Tomato Chutney!  


Green Chilies 6
Cumin Seeds 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Chopped Coriander Leaves 2 tbsp
Garlic Cloves 6/7
Peanuts 3 tbsp
Oil 1 tbsp
