Preparing a side dish using tomato would be preferred choice in most of the South Indian kitchen. Where I am not missed in that list :)
But preparing a same of curries using tomatoes would also be boring sometimes. So here is another simple and a quick recipe of preparing a tomato chutney using an additional ingredient of brinjal.

This chutney is in very plain taste without much of spices and hence can be preferably served for kids and infants when starting with solid food.

Tomato – 4
Brinjal – 2
Shallots/onion – 2 tbsp
green chilli – 1 or 2
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Mustard – Less than 1/4 tsp
Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt as required
1. Finely chop the shallots, slit the green chilli, cut the brinjal and tomato in big pieces.
 2. Heat oil in a pressure pan.Add mustard and let it splutter. Now add the shallots, chilli and saute for a while.
 3. Add in tomato and brinjal and mix well.
 4. Add 1/4 glass of water, a pinch of turmeric powder, salt and mix well. Close the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
 5. Transfer to a round vessel and smash it using a laddle.
 6. Transfer to a bowl and serve along with Idli/Dosa.
Tomato Brinjal chutney
  • The ratio of tomato brinjal would be 2:1
  • Take take to chop the brinjal and tomato in big pieces so that it would be easy to smash smooth.
  • Do not add more water as the chutney becomes watery,which would change the consistency and taste.
  • If you want add chilli powder for spice,but i prefer the flavor of green chillies for spice.
  • You can prepare this chutney for infants from their 8th month without adding chilli.
  • Earlier I have posted on a similar recipe of Potato chutney for infants
  • when cooking for infants just skip chilli and add very less oil.
