Red Chilly Chutney
In my house i have a standard menu. Dosa is must for 5 days a week,then one day is for bread and egg and one day is for idly or peserattu. And its boring to have the same chutney every day. So i keep on changing the chutnies to be served with the dosa. Today recipe is about red chutney.
Channa dal 3 tbsp
Dry Red Chillies 7-8
Freshly grated coconut 1/2 cup
Oil 2 tbsp
Tamarind a small pc
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp
Udad dal 1 tsp
Channa dal 1 tsp
Curry leaves few
Take oil in a pan once slightly hot add channa dal. Saute for a while. Add red chillies and saute for another 2-3 minutes (here we not frying it completely).
Switch of the flame,add tamarind and coconut.
Let it cool down and add salt and make a fine paste in a blender.
For tempering take oil in a small pan,when hot add channa dal followed by rai and udad dal. Then add curry leaves and hing.
Add this to chutney and serve with dosa or idly.
Isn't it simple and calls from very few ingredients.
