This is my hubby's grandmother's recipe.She makes this chutney with shallots/small onions and it will be very tasty. Since I get shallots rarely, I make it with the regular onions.
|Onions||2( medium sized)|
|Curry leaves||2 sprigs|
|Urad dhal||1 tbs|
- Mustard seeds - 1tsp
- Oil - 1tbs
Cut the onions and tomatoes into big chunks.Keep a pan in the stove top and add a tsp of oil.Fry the red chillies,channa dhal , urad dhal and transfer it to a plate.
Add another spoon of oil in the same pan and saute the onions till it becomes transparent.Then add in tomatoes,curry leaves and coriander leaves fry it for a minute followed by the grated coconut .Turn off the stove and let the mixture gets cool down.
Now grind the fried dhals and red chillies with salt,tamarind to a coarse powder.Next add in the cool down mixture and blend it to smooth paste.Transfer it to a serving bowl and season it with mustard seeds.
Kadhambha chutney is ready for serving.It goes very well with idly and dosa.
I am sending this one for condiment mela hosted by Srivalli.
- Tastes good if sesame oil is used.
- It can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.
- Garlic can also be added for extra flavor.
