kadalai-mavu-chutney-recipe
Kadalai mavu (besan) chutney is a good combination for dosa and poori. This gives a lot of volume and can be made easily in a jiffy. I have heard about this chutney during my childhood through my mom and paati. They add little kadalai mavu in poori masala all the time and they discuss one can make with kadalai maavu alone too. But we have never tried making this. This is the first time I have made this and tasted this. I had it with dosa and liked it tooLove Struck. Thanks to my friend Roopa for sharing the recipe. She is living in a joint family, so they make this very often as this is easy and can give you enough side dish for all.

Kadalai mavu chutney recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast side
Prep Time10 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins     serves: 3

Ingredients

Kadalamavu (Besan) - 3 tbsp

Onion – 2

Tomato – 1

Green chilli – 4

Ginger, very finely chopped - 1 tsp

Water - 2 & 1/4 cups

Salt - As needed

Ghee - 1 tsp

Coriander leaves, chopped - 2 tbsp


To temper (See notes for more options)

Oil - 1 tbsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 2 tsp

Chana dal- 1 tbsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. Slice onion, chop tomato, slit green chilli. In a mixing bowl, dissolve besan by adding little water first to make a paste, then add the remaining water and keep aside. Heat a pan with oil/ ghee, temper with the items given under to temper table. (Shown below is with fennel seeds) 
  2. 1-chutney
  3. Add onion, ginger and fry till transparent. Add the chopped tomatoes, required salt.
  4. 2-onion
  5. Fry until tomatoes turn soft. Add the dissolved besan slowly as you keep stirring. Bring to boil. If gets too thick, add little more water.
  6. 3-tomato
  7. Simmer for 4-5 minutes or until the raw smell goes away and the consistency is thick like poori masala. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves, ghee.
  8. 4-ready

Notes

    • You can also temper a small piece of cinnamon and clove.
    • Also you can temper with fennel seeds. I updated the recipe with the tempering items as I found that more tastier than fennel. So it's your choice purely.
    • Adjust water consistency as needed. 2 & 1/4 cup was perfect for me.
    • Don’t skip ghee, just 1 tsp at the end also enough.

Serve with dosa or poori, it was yummy with dosa.

  2. This is also called as bombay chutney. Addition of few garlic flakes ( not paste) and tiny pieces of ginger would make it more tastier. Sometimes we used to add curd to it as well.
