This South Indian chutney, replete with the nutty flavour of chana dal and the peppy flavour of spices, is sure to add a flavourful dimension to any dish it’s served with.

The Roasted Chana Dal chutney gets its pleasant tang from curds, which also contributes to the nice consistency and mouth-feel of this chutney. Serve it with idlis or dosas .
