Onion Tomato Chutney

This is one of my all time favorites. Goes along with anything - idlies, dosas, chapathis, parathas, upma. And moreover my mom-in law is the bestest when it comes to onion chutney.
Onion - 4 medium sized
Tomato - 4 medium sized
Red Chillies - 7
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Mustard Seeds -1/2 tbsp
Urad Dal - 1/4 tbsp
Tamarind - small ball (optional)
Curry Leaves - a few
Salt as required
Oil for cooking

Heat oil in a kadai and add the cumin seeds and red chilies.
Add chopped onion and fry till they turn translucent.
Then add chopped tomatoes,tamarind and curry leaves and saute.
Once they turn mushy remove from the heat and allow them to cool.
Grind them to a paste.
Again heat some oil in the kadai and add mustard seeds. Once they splutter add urad dal and saute till it turns golden.
Add the paste and stir till excess oil comes on the top.
Serve with hot idlies and dosas.

Bon Appetit!!
