Tomato Onion chutney (for dosa, idli etc)

Tomato Onion chutney goes very well as a side dish with Idli, Dosa, Uttapam etc. Its a bit spicy and does not require coconut to be added. It could be made in advance and can be refrigerated for 3-4 days .
All it needs is sautéing of onion and tomatoes and grinding it to a paste while your idli gets ready.

There is different version of making this chutney . Although here I have used jaggery in this but usually I add raisins while grinding sauted tomato , onion and other stuff.
