Tomato chutney recipe (andhra style)?

I’ve been to an Indian restaurant recently and had the Indian pancake (Dosa) along with a spicy tomato chutney. I am trying to find a recipe for this. Any ideas.

It seemed to have some peanuts in it and some sort of tempering with mustard.

    I know you are asking the question but I had notice some holiday jelly type products referred to as chutney, and for the life of me I don’t know what chutney is, I’m presuming a preserve?
