Kadala paruppu pudina thuvaiyal / channa dal mint chutney

                   Recently i was looking for something which is spicy and tasty one ,which go well with variety rice and tiffin items. I prepared this and used it in two ways. Semi liquid one for dosa and thuvaiyal type for variety rice.

Thuvaiyal,chutney,channa dal,dhal,mint,pudina,variety rice


Chana dal - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 big
Tomato - 2 big
Mint -1/2 cup
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup
Coconut shredded - 1/2 cup
Red chilli - 2
Green chilli - 1
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger - 1 " piece
Salt - as per taste
Oil - as per needed


* Chop onion ,tomato into small pieces.
* Chop pudina/mint and coriander leaves.
* Cut and crush ginger.
*Thaw shredded coconut ,if you are using frozen one.

1.In a kadai ,add 1 tbsp oil and add kadala paruppu and fry for 2 minutes.
2. Add crushed ginger,red chilli and green chilli.Add shredded coconut and cook till coconut is slighly brownish.
3. Next add onion and cook till onion turned translucent.
4..Next add tomato,mint/pudina and coriander leaves.Cover and cook for 7 more minutes in slow flame.Add red chilli powder and mix well.
5.Remove the lid and cook till the liquid from tomato is dried and the mix is bit dry.
6.Grind it without water when the mix cool down.
7.While serving with variety rice,serve as it is. If you are serving with idli or dosa,add little water and mix the thuvaiyal. Add tampering(oil,mustard,broken urad dal and curry leaves) to it.


*We can avoid pudina ,if you dont like its taste.
* Add tamarind,if you are packing it for travel.
* We can avoid red chilli but it gives that rich red color to the chutney.
