This is one of my favorite that my granny makes.  It tastes so good with Idly and Dosa. Well, lets have a look.


Red chillies – 10

Garlic – 10

Onion – 1

Tomato – 1

Tamarind pulp – little

Asafoetida powder – 1 pinch

Jaggery – 1 tsp

Curry leaves little

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

Gingelly/Sesame oil – 1 to 2 tsp.

Salt to taste

Take a pan.  Add oil.  Add red chillies. Add garlic. Fry for 2 to 3 min.  Add onion. Add salt.  Saute.  Add tomato.  Add tamarind pulp. Once its well cooked. Take off the pan from the flame.  Allow it to cool.  Now grind this mix.  Now, take a pan.  Add oil.  Add mustard seeds, add asafoetida powder, curry leaves.  Sim the flame.  Add the ground mix.  Take care to cook in low flame as it splatters. Cover it with a lid.  You can feel the raw smell going away after a few minutes.  Now add jaggery.  Mix well.  Switch off the flame.  Spicy chutney ready.
