Chana Dal Chutney

Red gram Chutney, It is specially made for to serve with Masala dosas. You will have to try it. If you want the chutney color bright yellow or orange, use only red chillies with some paprika. I used dried red chillies, few dry curry leaves and mustard seeds in tempering.  Adjust the salt, chillies and tamarind according to your taste.

  • ½ cup chana dal (red gram) soaked in water for 3-4 hours
  • 3-4 curry leaves

  • Grind soaked chana dal into mixer and make fine smooth paste.
  • Now add salt into and place into bowl from grinder.
  • Heat the pan into med. Flame, add ghee, red chilies, curry leaves, mustard seeds and turmeric powder in to ghee and prepare tadka for chutney.
  • Add tadka into smooth paste of chana dal.
