This is one of my favourite chutney . It is a special chutney of all the tiffin centres in Madurai . Very rare to get Idli without this chutney.


Toor dal - 2 tbsps
Brinjal - 3 medium
Tomato - 1
Onion - 1
Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Salt to taste


1) Boil toor dal , tomato and chopped brinjal for 7-8 whistles till the veggie is well cooked .
2) Heat oil in a kadai . Add mustard and channa dal . When it gets roasted , add curry leaves and onion .Saute till tender.
3) Add dal mixture to it and other ingredients . Allow it to boil for 5 minutes.Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot with Idli .
