Onion tomato chutney or dip. 

A lip-smacking and spicy savoury chutney or dip. Best accompany for your snacks, or use it as a sandwich spread.

Its my first post for Shhhh Cooking Secretly Facebook group and the theme is ‘Chutneys’. 

In this group all the participating bloggers were challenged to make a dish with the use of two secret ingredients their partner assigns them with.

This week’s theme is Chutneys. 

This is my first challenge I have been paired with Avin S Kohli, a very talented blogger who writes at  theyellowdaal.com 

A big thank to Avin for giving me these two ingredients. Chutney becomes super hit in my family. 

Best accompany with your snacks. I have used it as sandwich spread too. This finger licking chutney or dip made my sandwiches superbly delicious.

Tomato – 4 medium chopped 

Onion – 1 sliced 

Cilantro –  1 cup chopped 

Garlic – 3 – 4 cloves chopped 

Ginger – 1/2 inch piece chopped 

Cashew nut – 2 heaped tablespoon 

Green chilli – 2 – 3 or to taste 

Salt to taste
