Coconut chutny type#2

I have posted the simple yet tasty version of coconut chutny earlier. This is the second version of the different varieties of coconut chutnies I make.
This particular chutny is sweet,tangy and hot and goes well with idlis.I should make a point here in advance that this is bit sweet in taste ,every chat lover might like the taste as this chutny too has most of the flavours in chat, viz. Sweet,tangy,hot.However may not be for hot chutny lovers.

The required ingredients for making idli chutny are:

  1.  Freshly grated coconut 1 cup
  2. Roasted channa dal/ phutane/ hurigadale 1/4 cup
  3. Green chilies 2-3 
  4. Cleaned coriander about 1/4 cup
  5. Tamarind 2 tsp  or 1 tbsp
  6. Jaggery1-2 tbsp
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Water as required for grinding

For tempering/tadka:

  1. 1 tbsp cooking oil
  2. 1 tsp mustard seeds
  3. 1/2 tsp cumin/ jeera
  4. 1 tsp black gram/ udad dal
  5. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  6.  1/4 tsp asafetida/ hing

Method of making idli chutny:

  • Put all the ingredients of list 1 to a mixer jar.First churn a bit without water until phutana is ground coarsely. Then grind to make fine chutny adding required amount of water.
  • Take the ground chutny to a vessel.
  • For tempering,heat a tadka pan,add oil,then add black gram.when black gram turns light golden add mustard seeds and jeera.when they crackle,switch off the flame.
  • Add turmeric and asafetida.
 Pour the tempering over the ground chutny and mix well.

Serve with hot idlis.The kids sure will love this taste!!
You can always increase or decrease the quantity of ingredients to suit to the taste of your family.This recipe gives just an idea.
