Tomato and garlic chutney

There is a lot of variety in Tomato chutneys. The recipe is usually different between families, regions, etc. Once I had tasted tomato chutney with garlic flavour in a restaurant and I liked it very much. This recipe is my attempt to recreate that taste. It was a success !! I love this chutney with Idli and also as a Dosa spread.
