This Urad Dal Chutney is so simple and easy that can be made in the busy morning also. I learnt this recipe from my mom. It tastes so good with idli and especially wheat dosa and the left over chutney can be accompanied as a thogayal for lunch also. The flavour of the roasted urad dal, hing and the tanginess of the tamarind makes this chutney tongue smacking. Urad dal is also nutritious and it is recommended for diabetes, has shown to be useful to reduce the elevated cholesterol levels.
