Kadlebele Chutney | Split Bengal Gram Chutney | Split Chickpeas Chutney

As you all know, Corona virus is spreading quickly everywhere and its at all recommended to go out in most of the places. Curfew, home isolation these are the situation everywhere. This virus is spreading in our area also. Kids are homeschooling, husband is working from these days due to safety reasons. We are completely restricting ourselves from going out except fortnight grocery shopping. Hope some solution will be found out soon and I wish for everyone's safety and good health.
Coming back to the recipe part, here is and easy Chutney recipe which I learnt from my sister. This goes well with rice and Idlis. This Chutney can be made with commonly available ingredients from the kitchen pantry and hence, I thought this might be of help especially when you can't go out for much grocery shopping. Below is the recipe of Kadlebele Chutney or Kadle Kaalina Gojju..


Preparation time: 10 - 12 minutes
Difficulty level: Medium
Serves - 4

Ingredients:
  • Kadlebele (Split bengal gram) - 2 tbsp
  • Dry red chillies - 1 or 2 (adjust according to spiciness)
  • Urid dal - 1 tsp
  • Hing / asafoetida - generous pinch
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp + 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Green chilli (optional) - 1
  • Tamarind - 1 1/2 tbsp or to taste
  • Salt - to taste
  • Sugar - 1/4 tsp
  • Fresh grated coconut - 1 cup
  • Curry leaves (optional) - 4 leaves
  • Oil - 1 1/2 tsp + 1 tsp


Method:
  • Heat 1 1/2 tsp oil in a wok or heavy bottom pan. Add split bengal gram dal and roast it for 1 - 2 minutes.
  • To this, add urid dal, red chilli pieces, mustard seeds and hing. Once the mustard seeds start spluttering, add turmeric powder, green chilli pieces and curry leaves. Sauté for a minute and turn off the flame.
  • Grind the roasted lentil mixture along with fresh grated coconut, tamarind, salt and sugar. Add little water as required and make a thick, coarse paste. 
  • Heat the oil in a wok. Add 1 tsp mustard seeds and a pinch of hing. Once mustard seeds splutter, add this seasoning to the prepared Chutney. 
  • Serve this Chutney along with rice or Idlis.


Tips:
  • If you don't like to add green chillies, add more red chillies according to taste.
