Onion tomato chutney side dish for idli dosa

     My kid always prefer sambhar or any other gravy kind for idly and dosa as side dish,but some times in our morning hurry burries,we cannot make anything elaborate or we dont have any mood to cook. So I make this, he likes this too anyways. I learnt this from my mom-in-law,I have already jotted so much about her idlies and how I love them(I can shamelessly tell if she makes hot idlies and this chutney,I can eat  a dozen of idlies without any worries,hehe), this chutney also she  makes equally good, the same chutney when she makes tastes divine to me,though I am nearing to get mine as her chutney’s taste :)
