While all of you read this post, I'm at Mom's place enjoying my well deserved break and vacation. I'll be back soon to read your posts meanwhile enjoy this spicy chutney..
There are days when you feel like treating your taste buds with something very hot, fiery and spicy. For those days, I’m sharing this chutney with you. This is DH’s favourite and the recipe as usual is shared by my dear MIL.
It’s perfect with hot steaming rice with a dollop of ghee and if you have some filtered ground nut oil, that will be absolutely great.
4tsp Bengal Gram/ Chana dal
15 hot fiery green chillies
1-1/2 cup coriander leaves
2tbsp dry coconut
gooseberry size tamarind
a few tea spoons oil
1/2tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of strong asafoetida/heeng
Wash and chop the coriander and sauté in a few drops of oil.
Roast the lentils in a few drops of oil.
Roast the roughly chopped green chillies.
Dry roast the coconut.
Grind together the chillies, coconut, coriander, salt to taste and tamarind. Use water only if required.
Prepare the tempering and pour over the chutney and mix.
