Red Chutney recipe?

I've been trying to make red chutney like that found at Indian Restaurants.

I've tried a few different ones. This one was the latest:

The color looked like what I was expecting.

But the problem seems to be that no matter which recipe I try, it tastes too much like fresh tomatoes. (With heat).

Whereas in the chutneys in the restaurants, they don't really taste like a tomato.

I even called a restaurant to ask if they use normal tomatoes in it. They said yes.

The home made sauce just tastes too much like a spiced up fresh tomato.

Every restaurant might makes theirs differently. So if anyone is familiar with the red chutney from a Kaveri Madras restaurant; Pasand's restaurant; or Peacock Restaurant, those are what I'm trying to make.

Here's what my latest attempt looked like. I think the color came out similar to the recipe above. But I think it has to taste less like a tomato.

(The recipe called for 3 tomatoes. I paused it at 2 and tasted it, and it already tasted too much like a fresh tomato. I continued with the 3rd tomato, just to follow the recipe.)

Here's a picture of what I'm trying to make:

Maybe those places don't make them fresh. I don't know.
