To make this chutney, first heat oil in a pan. Add urad dal, chana dal, and dry red chillies and roast for 1 to 2 minutes.
Now, add black pepper, garlic cloves, chopped onion, tomato, green chilli, and curry leaves. Once the tomatoes turn soft and mushy, turn off the flame and transfer the mixture to a bowl to cool.
Transfer to a blender and add salt. Blend well to make a smooth paste. (You can add some water at this stage if needed.)
Temper it with some oil, curry leaves, mustard seeds, and urad dal, and enjoy! Kara chutney is ready.
