​Diwali is over and now everyone is back to routine with office,cooking,house cores ,etc etc.. ☺

As green tomatoes are in the season ,i am here with a all purpose GREEN TOMATO CHUTNEY …..a delicious lip smacking dip which goes very well with chapatis / Dosas/rice….

I enjoyed this with Neer dosa..

Green Tomatoes are nothing but raw tomatoes, which has a unique taste with its crunchyness ….

In the recipe, along with tomatoes we also use groundnuts, which increases the taste and gives a rich thick volume to the dip….

There is no use of coconut in the recipe …so can be preserved for a week by refrigerating  in a airtight container….

So lets see how the recipe is and what are the Ingredients required for making this awesome chatpat dip..

Recipe credit to Dhanya Shenoy


•6 raw tomatoes of medium size chopped 

•3 greenchilles  (add as per requirement)

•1 tsp oil

•1/4 tsp cumin seeds 

•2 tblsp fried groundnut/peanuts 

•6 cloves garlic

•1/4 “ginger chopped 

•a small tamrind seed sized Jaggery 

•2 tblsp chopped coriander leaves  (optional ) 

•salt as per taste 


▪Heat a pan add oil, add chopped tomatoes,greenchillies and fry for 5-8 minutes or till tomatoes turn soft.

▪switch off flame and leave to cool,when cooled add tomatoes to mixi jar along with other ingredients and grind to chutney consistency 

▪Remove to a container ,Enjoy this with dosas /rice /chapatis 

▪You can even season the dip with a tsp of oil , mustard , broken red chillies and curry leaves….I have kept it simple without giving tadka…

▪Here in my dip i have not removed the skin of groundnuts, if you like you can remove the skin 

▪The same recipe can be made with ripe tomatoes , but the taste of the dip definitely varry….

Todays breakfast recipe
    A healthy version of Rawa Dosa,…here I have not used Maida or soda which we usually use in making Rawa dosa (which I have shared in my earlier recipe)instead I have used multigrain atta to make it healthy….This dosa equally tastes delicious and crispy and a happy part is that you can make it instantly when compared to our regular rawa dosa,just give this a try and enjoy when needed  🙂


• 1 cup Chiroti Rawa (very fine rawa)
• 1 cup Rice flour
• 1/2 cup multigrain atta or normal wheat flour
•Salt to taste
•Oil to dizzle
•3/4 tsp cumin seeds
•1 small onion finely chopped
•1 small piece ginger finely chopped
•11/2 green chillies finely chopped
•Few chopped curryleaves
• chopped coriander leaves  (optional)


▪ In a container mix all flours with enough water to get thin batter(preferably to neer dosa consistency)rest this for 15 minutes
▪you can see the batter becoming  thick after 15 minutes, if necessary add water
▪Note to get a crispy texture the batter must be as liquid as we do for neer dosa
▪Now add all the chopped veggies, jeera and salt,give it a good mix
▪Heat dosa griddle well , drizzle oil and pour a laddle full of batter from a distance to get correct rawa dosa effect..(don’t fill the gaps,or spread the batter see pic below)


▪Don’t close lid while cooking ,drizzle oil on top and cook till crisp and base is golden now dosa is ready to eat..
▪if you like you can flip dosa and cook other side but I have not done here..
▪Enjoy hot with chutney…

* while makeing dosa mix the batter well and then make dosas ,repeat this each time when you take dosas..
*if it’s thick add water to make thin..
*This dosas must be enjoyed when hot..
