Curry leaves dry chutney

Curyy leaves are from Neem family and are also called meetha neem or kadhi neem as they are used in seasoning various dishes. They are known to reduce cholesterol and also reduce nausea during pregnancy.

Today I am posting dry chutney which we make with curry leaves. This is a very tasty and healthy chutney. Can be had with idlis, dosas or rotis. You can also sprinkle it over plain hot rice and have it with a dollop of ghee......That tastes yummmmm.......my favourite since childhood .....!!!!!




Ingredients :

1 big bunch of ................fresh curry leaves
1 bowl...........................roasted chana daal
                                      (also called dale)
1 bowl............................dry coconut grated
10 to 12........................dry red chillies
lemon size...................tamarind
salt
sugar










Method :


(I used this shown quantitiy of curry leaves and not the quantity shown in the plate below with other ingredients.)


Dry roast the curry leaves till they become crisp.








Also dry roast chana daal and coconut separately.
Dry roast dry red chillies.

Grind all the above ingredients together.
