Tomato raisin chutney recipe - This  is a slightly sweet chutney with ginger and garlic flavor. It is a very simple chutney recipe even a beginner can adapt quickly. It is a side dish option and pairs well with methi thepla and paneer cabbage paratha . I have used raisins in this recipe which gives a unique taste to the chutney. Always I reserve some tomatoes for this chutney preparation. I have already posted mint coriander chutney which also goes well with parathas.
