Written by: 7aumsuvai
Green tomato chutney, preparing this recipe was a different experience that I hesitated to try for a very long time. One of my friends gave me this green tomato from her garden and asked me to try recipes with that.  Initially, it was hard for me to think about recipes, so I went through a lot of different sources. It was a bit surprising to see a lot of recipes using green tomatoes. Finally, tried chutney and served it with hot idli.
