Hi friends,one of the simplest recipe to go with bread ,Idli, dosa and chapatti.
Dear Czech friends-try this chutney with Knedliky or bread.
Now the ingredients:-
Onions -2 big
Tomatoes -3 big
Urid dal * -2 tbsps
Red chili ** -1
Red chili powder*** -1 tsp
Coriander leaves -a handful
Garlic(optional) -one small pod
Salt to taste
Oil -2 tbsps full
For finishing in the end
Mustard seeds (Horcice) -1/2tsp
Curry leaves -1 string
Take a pan and add oil in it .When its warm add the Urid dal and sauté it till its slightly fried. Add Red chilies and sauté it for a minute.
*Dear Czech friends –As Urid dal is not available in the local markets –you can please skip this step.
**The whole red chili is available in the shop mentioned in my earlier blog. To benefit the people who are visiting my blog for the first time - Many of the Indian condiments are available in the shop in Futurum adjacent to New Yorker shop.
Once the dal is slightly sautéed with red chili add the cut onions and sauté it till its translucent.
Add a pinch of salt while sautéing the onions to cook faster.
Now add the tomatoes and sauté it well till the juices from the tomatoes are released and the mixture slowly becomes mushy.
Then add the red chili powder and sauté for another few mnts.
***Dear Czech friends-If you don’t want the chutney to be spicy –add only the sladky chili powder to give you the color.
If you want it spicy add half of pikant chili powder and half sladky chili powder.
For other friends-Add the Kashmiri chili powder.
Now once the mixture is cooked to mushy consistency remove the pan from the stove and add the coriander leaves to it and mix well.
Wait for the mixture to cool and grind it in a mixer by adding the salt to your taste.
Transfer the chutney into serving bowl.
Now take a small pan and add ½ tsp of oil in it and when its warm –add the mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add the curry leaves and pour it on the top of the chutney.
Mix well and serve it as an accompaniment.
