Tomato Kothamalli Chutney

#TomatoKothamalliChutney  #TomatoCorianderLeafChutney : I bought a very big bundle of coriander leaves from the market. I cleaned and separated the thick bottom stem portion from the coriander plant. I decided to make chutney using these stems as they can not be used for garnishing and more over I do not want to throw them away as waste. Here comes the recipe.

Tomato Coriander Leaf Chutney

Ingredients :
2 medium size                            Tomato [ country variety ]
