ANDHRA TAMARIND CHUTNEY



This is one of my favourite andra recipe . I learnt this recipe from my neighbour .
I thank Mani Akka for teaching this yummy spicy chutney.

INGREDIENTS :

Raw Tamarind (Fresh ones ) - 500 gms
Crystal salt - as required

For Chutney :

Mustard - 1 tsp
Green Chillies - 2
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Asafoetida as required
Urat dal - 1 tsp
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Red Chillies - 2

METHOD OF PREPARATION :

1) Clean and wash the tamarind and remove the outer skin . Crush it to remove the seeds .
2) Then , stuff it with salt and store in an airtight container for 2 - 3 days .
3) This is done so that salt gets well in the tamarind .
4) While preparing for chutney , take a required amount of it (for persons around 100 gms) .
5) Grind tamarind with green chillies , chilli powder , turmeric powder and asafoetida with little water .
6) Meanwhile , heat oil in a pan . Once hot , add mustard , red chillies ,curry leaves , urat dal and channa dal . Saute it till channa dal gets roasted . Turn off the flame .
7) Add the grinded chutney to this tadka and mix it well . Transfer it to a separate dried bowl .

Serve hot with Rice / Dosa .
