Red Gram Chutney


  • ½ cup split Bengal gram (chana dal)
  • 3 tbsp grated dry coconut
  • 3 tbsp groundnut, roasted
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • Unrefined salt to taste

To Temper

  • ¼ tsp mustard seeds (rai)
  • 3 – 4 curry leaves
  • Asafoetida (hing) to taste


Roast the chana dal & grind (using a little water) along with the rest of the ingredients to a paste. Temper with roasted mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida.


In the above, reduce tamarind and add raw tomato (lightly steamed) to get raw tomato chutney. You could also substitute raw mango for tamarind. Another variation would be with sautéed onions.

Serves 2 – 3
