Tomatillo cilantro chutney

First when  i saw this tomatillo i thought these are nothing but indian green tomato but when researched i came to know that it was totally different fruit. i just tasted a piece and it was tooooooooo tangy . So i just thought of making them to chutney.  The chutney turned out really yummm ...

Lets look for the ingredients and method for making this yummmy and easy  chutney..


1 Bunch cilantro leaves (dhania)
2 small tomatillo ( chopped)
1 small size onion (chopped)
2-3 green chillies adjust to your taste
2 red chillies
1tsp oil
Salt to taste


In a pan heat oil add red chillies, onion ,saute the onions till transparent. Now add the tomatilloes and cook the till they are nicely roasted and soft. Add salt and mix well. cool the mixture for a while and  transfer them to blender/mixer. Add chopped greenchillies, chopped cilantro/coriander leaves and them to a paste . There is no need to add water as tomatillo leaves out water while grinding . serve them as a side dish for idli or dosa.

If  u didn't plan anything for valentines day and want to impress your wife's ...yess wife's!!! bcoz we cook all time but one day if our hubby's cook for us we feel so blessed isn't it :)... so this recipe is for all those hubby's want to impress  your wife's :P just make a round dosa's take a heart shaped cookie cutter ..cut the dosa's in heart shape. now for plating .. Spread the tomatillo cilantro chutney place the heart shaped dosa's and then garnish them with strawberries as shown in the pic .. 

Tadaaa !!!
