    2. Hi jeyashree..my neighbour gave this chutney and I really love d it..but I tried twice..it didn't come out well.the kadalai mavu flavour at the end when I eat taste raw,though I boil it well in the sim.where I could have gone wrong..

    3. The quantity of besan may be more. The batter should be thin before once you mix and it will get thickened after cooking.
