Mixed Vegetable Chutney

 As we all know, we cant make most of the Chutneys without Coconut. But, this Chutney doesn't need Coconut and is very healthy, goes well with all dishes those require Chutney. I learnt this recipe from Sharadakka ( Sharada Bhat). Give it a try. Enjoy.

  • Salt to taste

For Tempering
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • pinch of Hing/Asafoitida

  • Heat the Oil in a pan. Add Channa dal and Black Gram dal , add all the grated vegetables once Chana dal and Black Gram dal turns golden brown.
  • Saute them until tender . Then grind with salt and Tamerind into smooth paste ( dont grind for more than 1 min).
