The chutney is made by grinding sauteed chana dal (split chickpeas), urad dal (black gram), fenugreek (methi), coriander seeds (dhaniya), lots of whole red chillies, finely chopped onion, garlic, and turmeric powder for colour. Tamarind paste is also added to bring a striking sweet and tangy flavour. Tempering made of mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves, hing and red chilli levels up this already-tasty chutney.
Cooking the chutney along with tempering not only enhanced its flavour, it also extends its shelf life. You can store this chutney and use it for up to one week. Don't forget to garnish it with coriander leaves.
