How to make chana dal chutney?
Chana Dal Chutney Without Coconut | Red Chutney | with step by step description, photos & video. Chutney recipes or condiment recipes are very common and a must dish for many Indians. We need some roasted chana dal/Bengal gram to make this chutney. I prefer to fry the regular chana dal in some oil till they are browned and then make the red chutney.
Chutney, prepared with channa dal, red chillis, onion, ginger, and garlic. This chutney does not have coconut nor tamarind in it. Adjust the spiciness by altering the number of red chilies used. I am adding Kashmiri red chilies here, for a blissful color. If you prefer more hot then add normal red chilies. And when it comes to consistency, I like to have it thicker as shown in the picture. Rather than diluting, this chutney tastes good this way. Lastly, if you prefer, do not forget to add the oil and mustard-based tempering to get the authentic taste. But I love the taste of this chutney before tempering.
