Kadale Bele Chutney / Kadalai Parppu Chutney

This is a south Indian chutney. In Kannada it is Kadale Bele and in Tamil it is called KadalParppu chutney. For this chutney I have added coriander leaves and green chillies so that color of the chutney is green. This will suit for dosa, puri, idli and plain rice. I will make lots of twists in this chutney so that the taste varies.






Ingredients
  • Bengal gram / Kadale Bele / Chanda dal - 5 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 6 -7 leaves
  • Green chillies - 2-3 (as per taste)
  • Coconut , grated - 1 cup
  • Ginger - a small piece (optional) (but i use ginger normally)
  • Tamarind paste /pulp - 1/4 tsp Or Lemon juice
  • Rock salt / Salt - as per taste
For Tempering
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Black gram / Udhina bele / Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida / hing - a pinch
Method
  • Roast bengal gram / kadale bele along with curry leaves and green chillies
  • Grind the coconut, roasted bengal gram, curry leaves, chillies, ginger, tamarind and salt
  • Add a little bit of water to grind coaresly
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, allow to splutter and add hing, black gram fry till brown
  • Pour into the chutney and serve
Note : You can use lemon juice after grinding instead of tamarind.
