Kadalai paruppu chutney | Bengal gram chutney

Posted on March 18th, 2009

Kadalai paruppu chutney is yet another jiffy cooking dish. Unlike other chutneys this one can be had with rice too. I usually prepare this chutney without adding too much water (bit thick). It tastes heavenly when it is taken with hot rice and nalla ennai (Gingelly oil).

Preparation Method:

  • Add asafetida to it.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • Add coconut, coriander leaves, salt, ginger and tamarind to the mixture.
  • Add little water and grind it.
  • Serve with hot rice, idly, dosa or chappathi.


  • You can also add garlic to the recipe.
