Dal Chutney

I have lived most of my life in South India, and grown to love Dosa! So when I moved to Bangkok for work, I could cook Sambar, Dal Tadka, and Chicken Curries but I missed Chutney. One key ingredient which I need was dry Coconut which I could not find easily at nearby Super Market. I tried to use coconut milk and fresh coconut it did not taste the same. So I started making Dal Chutney, which I loved. So here are the Ingredient and Steps to make Dal Chutney.

Ingredients :

  • Main :
    • 5 tsp of Roasted Chana Dal
    • 2 tsp grated coconut (Optional)

    • 4-5 tsp of Water
  • Thadka
    • 1/2 tsp of Oil
    • 1 tps Mustard Seeds
    • 3 dried Chillis
    • 4 Curry Leaves

Preparation : 

  • Step 1:
    • Boil the Soaked Chickpea (Chole) with Baking Soda and Tea Bag.
    • Baking Soda would help Chickpea Soak more water and Cook thoroughly.
    • Tea Bag would give Brownish Color and help neutralize Baking Soda.
    • Can add One Chopped Potato if you like.
  • Step 2:
    • Mix all the ingredients of Masala – Chola Masala/Garam Masala, Cumin, Coriander, Chili and Turmeric Powder, Ginger Garlic Paste
    • Add the mix to Boiled Chickpea (Chole)
    • Mix them all well.
    • Heat Ghee and add to the mix.
  • Step 3:
    • Head Oil and Onion, Head them till it is brown.
    • Once Onion is brown, Add Tomato Puree and Yogurt to the mix.
    • Cook them well.
    • Add Chickpea (Chole) Mix to this.
    • Cook it for 10 minutes.
    • Can Add Water if you want to make it like Curry. (This is optional)
