Gorgeous chana dal chutney!!
Cooking seems to be very simple and easy if chana dal chutney happens to be your first cooking debut. And your quest and enthusiasm doubles up if your debut recipe wins everyone’s hearts. Isn’t it? It probably happened with me when I was taking baby steps in kitchen world. Since the beginning had such a triumph, my passion towards cooking increased manifold. And it still continues eternally in me, food and deliciousness always entice me. Basically it is the food that can satisfy me than anything else for that matter. I love this dip with all my routine breakfasts like mallige idli, akki rotti, dosa, shavige, neeru dosa and even with rice. A bowlful of hot steaming rice with a dollop of coconut oil combined with a big spoon of chana dal chutney is an absolute bliss. Trust me. I mean it.
When you say chutney, it’s the coconut that you need to look for at the first step. Ok, Ok. I know you can argue with me giving a list of coconut-free chutneys. But in my view, it’s the coconut which is a perfect ingredient for a creamy, thick chutney. Coconut based dip is what the restaurants depend upon to make the breakfast they serve, a delicious affair. I can’t stress enough about coconut because I belong to a place where it goes in to most of the recipes.
