Poondu chutney is prepared using lot of garlic pods and red chillies. It goes well with idli,dosai or chapathi. My mom used to make this for ragi dosai, kambu dosai or cholam dosai. As these tiffins are bland in taste, this chutney compliments it very well. I prepared this chutney for quinoa dosai. It went very well with it.Linking this to Nalini Suresh's "Tamizhar Samayal Tuesdays" event.

* Peel the skin of garlic pods , cut the tomato into cubes.Since , my kids will eat ,I have reduced the amount of red chillies. But chutney will taste good, if we use more red chillies.
Serve chutney with dosai, idli, rag idli, or quinoa dosai . We can store in refrigerator for atleast a week.If we want, add a pich of tamarind for a sour taste.
