Kadalai maavu(besan) chutney, side dish for idli | dosa

Kadalai maavu chutney is an instant and easy chutney recipe, pairs well with dosa and idli. During my childhood my  mom makes this kadalai maavu chutney | besan chutney | bombay chuntey, during weekends. We all sit together and relish this with idli and dosa. This kadalaimaavu  chutney can be made in a jiffy and i personally love this with dosa. My dad used to feed us dosa with kadala maavu chutney during all weekends, even we are grown up.
