Anu's Kitchen Chutney

Kadalai paruppu chutney | Bengal gram chutney

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:

  • Heat little oil and roast the kadalai paruppu and red chilies.

  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • Add coconut, coriander leaves, salt, ginger and tamarind to the mixture.
  • Add little water and grind it.

  • You can also add garlic to the recipe.

This reminds me of parappu thogayal, only different because of the ginger and coriander leaves. Loved it, I am definitely going to try this one soon 🙂
