    chutney-idli-recipe

     Chutney idli? I have never thought this way before! My FIL told me about this tiffin, when I went to Chennai in March. I loved the idea the very instant he told and have been thinking for a while now to try it out. Now since they(FIL & MIL) are here with me in Singapore, I took the recipe/ idea from them and tried it. This one is served in one of the hotels in Trichy, near the bus stand. They forgot the name of the hotel, but I never bothered as my FIL always tells recipes perfectly. MIL helped me in prĂ©cising the recipe.

   The idea of this is just like sambar idli, the consistency should be like that. If you are thinking that it involves too much coconut in this recipe, no its not! We use only 1/4 cup coconut for serving 2 people. This can be a great evening snack and you can also club this with other dishes in any get together dinners. Everybody will be wow-ed. And the recipe is so so flexible, that you can add your touch to the chutney or make your favourite flavour chutney and enjoy! So now to the recipe…

Chutney+idli+recipe

Notes

  • The chuntey gets thickened when you boil, so you can add water. Also when it cools down, gets thicker.
  • You can add a garlic flake in the chutney while you grind. Or even a shallot while grinding. This adds more flavour to the chutney. Ginger also is a nice choice for flavouring.
  • Fried shallots adds a great flavour to this. You can also replace it with finely chopped large onion.
  • I made lesser in quantity than mentioned here.
  • Idli should be soft enough to absorb the chutney mix.

  6. Chinna vengayam talicha chutney is my dad's absolute favorite!! When all of us felt lazy and avoided that, he would sit with a plate of chinna vengayam and carefully peel and slice them. Then ask me or amma to temeper the chutney. And then the look on his face with the first bite, priceless!!! Chtney idli sounds amazing, will try this soon.

  14. This is something I've never heard of before. Do you know why you milk has to be added? Is it to get a liquid-like consistency, or is it something to do with the taste?

    Your blog is a site I come to everyday, just to drool at all the pictures.
