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 .
