Hope everyone had wonderful and lighted weekend. Same here as well. Coming to today's  post its simple but aromatic and flavorful.  Yah its chutney for Idli's and Dosa's.  You can understand how flavorful and aromatic it will be when you look up the ingredients.  This is no onion and no garlic chutney which you can make even in fasting days too.  This tastes so so delicious with all aromatic herbs and flavorful ginger and tomatoes. Hot steaming Idli's  and this kind of flavorful chutney ooooooh its heavenly right !!!. Just try it out when you make Idli, dosas or oothappams.  I bet you will make it again and again.  When you make this don't omit any of the ingredients , as each one gives wonderful taste that you can feel in every bite.  




Tomato - 3 medium size (Roma in US or Bangalore tomato In India)
Red chillies - 3 or 4
Green chilli - 3
Curry leaves - 1 handful
Coriander leaves - 1 handful
Mustard - 1/4 tbsp + 1/4 tbsp ( for grinding as well as seasoning)
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Roasted bengal gram - 1 1/2 tbsp



Method :

1. Grind all the above ingredients to fine paste.
2. Heat oil in the pan, crackle the mustard.
3. Add the ground one add water little ( approximately 3/4 cup)
4. Once it starts boiling and thickens just switch of the flame.
5. Serve with hot steaming Idli or dosas.

Note :

1. Roasted bengal gram will thickens the chutney when its cooking.
2. It has to be in sambar consistency.
