22 DHAL COCONUT CHUTNEY AND AN AWARD

Dhal Coconut Chutney/ Paruppu Thengai Chutney


This is simple variation as to regular coconut chutney, but it tastes great with idli or dosas. I just wanted to make chutney with coconut and pottu kadalai, just when I checked the pantry did I know that I was out of them. This recipe is similar to paruppu thovayal/thogayal , but I made it in chutney style so did not fry it again after grinding.

Channa dhal - 2 tbsp
Urad dhal - 2 tbsp
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Red chillies - 3 or 4
Tamarind - a small piece
Garlic - 3 pods (optional)
Hing - a pinch
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tsp

For tempering:
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds and curry leaves - few


Heat 1 tsp of oil in a frying pan and add channa dhal and urad dhal, saute till they are light brown and then add red chillies,garlic, tamarind and hing. Fry for few seconds and remove to cool. Transfer to a mixie along with coconut and salt to grind to a smooth paste. Temper them with tempering ingredients and serve with idli or dosas.
