Kadalai paruppu chutney | channa dal chutney | side dish for idli|dosa

by Jeyashri suresh
Kadala paruppu chutney is yet another yummy and tasty recipe which i learnt from the friend’s mil, from whom i learnt the Kola urundai. This chutney is a perfect side dish for idli|dosa. The addition of mustard seeds in the recipes make it very unique and flavourful. The taste was close to the murugan idli kadai tomato chutney . Check out my Chutney recipes .

  1. Do not add the mustard seeds more than the quantity mentioned. It will make the chutney bitter.
  2. You can add 1 tblsp of fresh coconut to the chutney while grinding. This will enhance the taste.
