As much as I love my dosas and idlis, there is no denying that they are incomplete without a good chutney. I usually discuss which chutney to make with my family in the morning while making dosas/ steaming idlis and the demand is either for Hing chutney ** (by Mr Husband) and Tomato Chutney (by Miss Daughter). My son is just like me who loves any kind of chutney. 😍

But ever since I made this roasted gram dal coriander leaves chutney, the common demand by everyone including my son has been for this “green chutney”. My 2.5 year old son who is talking a lot now (inspired by you know who πŸ˜‚) calls it “geen chechi” and it sounds so cute that I can’t make any other chutney ever. πŸ˜„

So here is the recipe for the green chutney which tastes too delicious for words. A must try chutney for sure!

Thank you so much Vinaya Prabhu Akka for this keeper of a recipe. ❀️ We have become such huge fans of this chutney that we no longer like any other chutney now. 😍

Happy and healthy cooking everyone!

{** recipe for Hing chutney mentioned above is in the notes section of this Urad Rava idli recipe }

RECIPE:

Adapted from: Vinaya’s Culinary delights

Ingredients: Serves 2 to 3 people

1/4 Cup Gram dal

1/2 Cup freshly grated or desiccated Coconut

3 to 4 Green chillies

5 to 6 sprigs of Coriander leaves

6 to 8 Curry leaves

1 tsp Tamarind paste

Salt to taste

Step by step recipe:

1. Dry roast the gram dal on medium flame till it turns brown in colour. Don’t allow it to turn black. Cool down and powder in a mixer.

You can see the gram dal packet in the background for those who are new to it.

2. Now add coconut, green chillies, coriander leaves, curry leaves, tamarind paste and salt.

3. First grind once without adding water. Then add water as needed (about 1/4 to 1/2 Cup) to make a smooth paste. Dilute with more water to your desired consistency of thickness.

Notes:

* This chutney does not need seasoning with mustard seeds/ curry leaves.

* Be careful while roasting the gram dal as few extra seconds of roasting can make the dal turn black and burning it which can spoil the flavour of the chutney. Roast only till the dal starts turning brown.

* If you don’t have gram dal, then just increase the quantity of coconut to 1 Cup and skip the gram dal. That’s how I make my regular coriander chutney.

* I made this chutney with Barnyard Millet Idlis and it made a super delicious combo.
