Walnut Chutney

Recently I got a lot of walnuts (at super cheap price 😁✌️) which are so crunchy and tasty that I munch couple of them when I have mid meal hunger pangs. Apart from eating the walnuts as it is, I looked up for recipes so that I can add it in my kids’ diet too without them knowing (sshhh πŸ€«πŸ˜„).

That’s when I found that they could be added in chutneys and what better an idea as my kids love their dosa and idli with chutney. So I tried in many ways and finally found this way the best. In this chutney you can never say it has walnuts in it as the flavour of red chillies and hing masks the nuttiness of walnuts really well.

Today made this chutney with Rava Idlis and they made such a great combination that I felt like sharing it with you all instantly. Hope you all try it too. Happy and healthy cooking! ❀️

RECIPE:

Ingredients: { Serves 2 to 3 people }

3/4 Cup freshly grated Coconut or Desiccated coconut

4 Walnuts

4 Kashmiri Red Chillies or to taste

1 tsp Tamarind paste

Pinch of Hing / Asafoetida

Salt to taste

For seasoning:

2 tsp Coconut Oil

1 tsp Mustard seeds

5 to 6 Curry leaves

Step by step recipe:

1. Take coconut, red chillies, tamarind paste, hing and salt in a mixer.

2. Roast walnuts in a small pan for few seconds. It just needs to heat a bit. Then remove from the flame.

3. Add to the mixer.

4. Add water as needed and grind to a smooth paste.

5. Remove to a bowl. Heat coconut oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and when it splutters, add curry leaves and roast a little. Pour over the chutney. Mix well.

6. Serve with dosas or idlis.

Notes:

* I add 4 Kashmiri red chillies for 3/4 Cup Coconut. It does not turn out very spicy and I make it so as I make for my kids. You can increase as per your taste.

* 4 to 5 Walnuts are perfect for this measurement. If you add more, the walnut nuttiness might become more prevalent.

* I made this chutney with Instant Rava Idlis today.

* I make more than 30 types of Dosas including many no rice dosas too. You can check:
