Ginger Chutney - 2

My love for all things ginger can't be expressed sufficiently in words - a large chunk of it is smashed up and added to my daily tea and I typically incorporate it in most every dish I make. This is the second Ginger Chutney recipe on this blog but this version is quite different and something my MIL whipped up as an accompaniment to idlis/dosais. It was spicy, thick and delicious. The previous version however goes really well with rice.

GINGER CHUTNEY for Idlis/Dosas


Ingredients:

Ginger - 100 gms, peeled and chopped
Urad Dhal - 2 tbsp
Dried Red Chillies - 10 (yes this is a spicy chutney)
Tamarind - small piece
Jaggery - small piece
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp + 1 tsp (preferably Gingelly)
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few

Method:
1) Heat 1 tbsp of oil and add the urad dhal , red chillies and ginger and roast on medium till golden & fried. Add the tamarind towards the end and switch off the stove.

2) Allow this to cool a bit and grind along with salt and jaggery to a paste with water as required.

3) Heat the remaining 1 tsp of oil and season with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Pour over the chutney and serve.
