    I wanted to try out this chutney n I’ve a question. Shud the tomato also b of a bigger size? Do d onion n tomato be ssauted till they r cukd?

    • Hi,

      Size of onion and tomato will not make much difference. But if the tomato is sour variety, then use small size tomato. Just saute the tomato and onion for few seconds.
