Recently I tasted this chutney/spread at a friends place and fell in love with it! It is a yummy side dish with all healthy ingredients. This chutney is also very good for kids and acts as another option to feed them almond (main reason why I got attracted towards this dish!)
It taste somewhat like the peanut-coconut chutney but more richer and healthier.
10 - 15 almond (soak in warm water for 5-10 mins)
1 tbsp daaliya (roasted chana daal)
1/2 tbsp jaggery
1-2 pods of garlic
small piece of ginger
2 tsp jeera seeds
handfull of coriander leaves
2 tbsp coconut powder (u can use fresh also)
1/2 tbsp tamarind paste
2 roasted green chillies
1 tbsp ghee/oil
2 tsp mustad seeds
1 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
In a frying pan take 1 tsp of oil and roast the green chillies. Grind the ingredients mentioned under to grind along with the chillies into a paste. You can increase or decrease the green chillies depending on how hot you want it. Temper with the ingredients mentioned for tempering. Enjoy this yummy and healthy chutney with fried snacks or any of the south indian dishes like dosa, uttapam, idli.
Note: Daaliya (chana daal/bengal gram daal) here, I am referring to the one we put in chiwda and coconut chutney. The roasted chana daal or phutane. Not the broken wheat daliya.
You can adjust the amount of jaggery if you dont want it to be sweet.
