I love this chutney ! Its just a little diffrent from the normal coconut chutney that we make.
Fried Urad dal gives a nice flavour to this chutney. Try this and let me know !
2-3 Tablespoon of Urad Dal
3-4 Red Chillies
1 cup of grated cocounut
2-3 Gralic Pods( Optional )
Tamarind - size of a small amla
1-2 tablespoon Oil
Heat some oil in a small saute pan.Add Urad dal , fry it and then add the red chillies.
Once the color changes add garlic pods and grated coconut.Fry everything together for a minute or two.Remove it from fire.
Now add the tamarind to the fried contents.Add some cold water(depends on how watery you want the chutney to be) to it and keep it aside.After 2-3 mins grind everything together along with the required salt and some hing/Asafoetida powder.
You can also add mustard seeds and curry leaves as tadka for the chutney.Enjoy this chutney with Idlis,Dosas,Rava Idlis,Rava Dosas and Pongal !
