I have seen my friends eating this Tomato Coriander Chutney along with rice. Earlier, I had posted Tomato Mint Chutney and many readers emailed me that you liked it so much. This chutney also tastes very similar to the Tomato Mint Chutney except that this chutney will have both the flavors of tomato and coriander leaves. You will not get a distinct taste of either of the ingredients.
