For Tempering

Heat oil in a pan until hot. Add in the mustard seeds, curry leaves, urad dal and dried red chillies. Let the mustard seeds pop and the dal brown. Add it to the chutney.

A small tip: Do not mix the tempering after adding it to the chutney. Just mix the tempering right before serving. The tempering stays fresh, crisp and crunchy if the tempering is mixedΒ right before serving.

    dear, in this recipe u have mentioned about “red chillies” twice in the instructions part. But in the ingredients part, u have mentioned about qty of dried red chillies only in the tempering part da. U have not mentioned the qty of dried chillies for chutney preparation. Can we add it according to our preference?? since there is jaggery in this recipe, i am not sure about qty of dried chilly to make it as a perfect chutney.

  2. Dear Mam,

    This is one staple chutney at our home. Goes very well with gothumai dosai with much spicier. Also, to the same base just replace coriander seeds with a hand full of curry leaves and skip jaggery… saute in sesame oil. Grind all together. The most tastiest… I’m sure you will love it. Just thought to share. thank you!!






  3. Hello Suguna,

    I vowed myself that I would write the comments today for sure as for the past few months I have been totally relying on your recipes and been getting a very good name here!! This chutney is a showstopper – we were absolutely stunned!! I have never used jaggery in my cooking.. but now, if kannamma says so, then in goes the jaggery with the tamarind!! I made brown rice kozhukattais with veggies and I really wanted to try this chutney – I am so glad that I did!! thank you so much for sharing this recipe πŸ™‚
