Cooking Time 10 min
Serving Persons 4
2 medium onion cut into big cubes
3 medium tomatoes cut into big cubes
4 green chili
1 inch of ginger
2 big garlic cloves
½ cup coconut cut into small pieces
a piece of tamarind.
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1 tsp coconut oil
Salt to taste
2 tsp coconut oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp moong dal
1 whole red chili
a pinch of asafoetida
12 to 15 curry leaves
Heat oil. When it is hot add cumin seeds.
When cumin seeds starts crackle add onion,ginger and garlic with a pinch of slat.
So that onion is cooked faster,sauté for 1 o 2min.
Now add tomatoes and let it cook for some itme.
Then add turmeric powder and mix it well.
Next goes in coconut and tamarind,let it cook for some time.
Finally add chopped coriander leaves,mix it well.Turn off the flame.
Let it cool down and then grind to a smooth puree. And add salt.
Now the tadka time,heat oil.
Add the tadka ingredients..wait till the mustard seeds start crackle and udad dal turns into golden colour.
Pour the tadka mix on chutney…serve with idli,dosa…
You can make the chutney without coconut also.
If you want to keep the chutney fresh for more time…just skip the coconut part.
You can have this as it is without tadka…for more healthy option.
I have used moong dal in tadka for more healthy option…you can replace with udad dal.
