IDLI-DOSA CHUTNEY POWDER
With idli and dosa being perennial favorites in South Indian homes, there is always the need to have freshly made chutney and or chutney powder as accompaniments for them.
There are many methods of making chutney powder at home. The ingredients vary from recipe to recipe. Today's recipe is for an easy-to-make Chutney Powder using Urad Dal and Chana Dal. I normally use the less spiced Byadgi Red Chillies in all my cooking. I mention this because the number of red chillies we use for this Chutney Powder will depend on the type of chillies used, apart from your taste, of course.
This Chutney Powder goes great with both idlis and dosas..
Please do try it out and I am sure you will like it as much as we do.
