Urad dal & Sesame seeds chutney – Side Dish for idly/dosa

Another interesting and flavorsome chutney with sesame seeds and urad dal. I have added sesame seeds to the original urad dal chutney recipe, to give it little flavor. I love toasted sesame seeds in my condiments, as expected it gave nice flavor to the chutney and paired well with the Azhagar dosa. 

1/4 cup Urad dal
1/4 cup white seasame seeds
1/3 cup of freshly grated coconut
6-8 nos round red chilies
marble sized tamarind
2 strands of curry leaves
Handful of free coriander leaves
1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp oil
1/4 tsp sesame seeds
1 green chili, chopped
2-3 curry leaves.

  • Dry roast Urad dal and white Seasame seeds until.golden brown. Transfer it to a flat plate, let it cool completely.
  • Take the roasted ingres td along with chilies,coconut, coriander leaves and curry leaves, along with tamarind and salt.in a mixer.Grind it to a fine chutney  using 1/2 cup of water. Transfer the chutney to a clean bowl. 

  • Heat oil for tempering, crackle the sesame seeds, add green chili and curry leaves, pour the sizzling tadka over the chutney. Serve  it along idly/dosa.
