Idli-Dosa Chutney

With a lot of Dosa recipes raining in the blog world I thought it was the right time for me to post this chutney..It tastes great with idlies and dosas and can be had with rice too..Very quick to prepare and does not need much ingredients..


Tomato - 1 medium sized
Onion - 2 medium sized1/2 tsp Urad dal(ulundhu)
Red chillies - 3 (if you need it hot you can add 4 )
Channa Dhall (kadala paruppu) - 1 tablespoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad dhall - 1 teaspoon
Asofoetida - 1 pinch
curry leaves - 1 sprig
Tamarind paste - 1 teaspoon (optional )


Chop the onions and tomato roughly.
Season with mustard seeds, urad dhall,channa dhall and asafoetida.
Add the onions and saute for a while..They need not become very soft and translucent..Just saute them until the raw smell disappears..
Then add the red chillies and tomatoes and saute again.
Add curry leaves and cilantro and saute again and allow the mixture to cool.
Once cooled blend the above mixture along with tamarind and a little salt in a mixie.
Serve with hot idlies and dosas..
