Sounds tangy and delicious! Tomatoes here hardly have much tang, so this would be a great substitute. I love Cynthia's idea about a tomatillo achar too..

Meera said...

looks interesting Sagari! Will try sometime and let you know

Kribha said...

I've not cooked much with tomatillos. Chutney looks so good and tempting. Adding peanuts must have enchanced the taste too.

TBC said...

I have the same recipe for tomatillos used to make a chutney, on my blog.
