I added a lime size ball of tamarind while grinding. the resultant taste was excellent; just like the one we get at the udipi restuarant here in Mumbai.

Awesome, Anu. I took Charisma's suggestion regarding the urad dal and salt. Both of the dals add a wonderful richness to this chutney. Also, I blended into the chutney about 1T of fresh ginger. I'm not a huge fan of ginger, but it added a little zing. I'd make this often if it wasn't such a struggle with getting the coconut meat out of the shell. Terribly time-consuming, that process, but on occasion - worth it!

Hi Anu! You know what, I LOVE this recipe! It is soo increibly tasty and wonderful with dosa! Oh Anu, your mom's hands must be made of something we all others lack, lol, she comes up with the most delicious recipes and the best part I like is that they help me lose weight and yet enjoy my food! THANK U, Anu! For this one, I used 1 tsp. red chilli powder and 1 green chilli(since my mom wanted it to be more spicy - initially, I could not find my box of green chillies, so I used the red chilli powder, but later after the chutney was ready, we found it to be mildly spicy, so I had to grind a green chilli alongwith some of the chutney mixture in my mixer to get it just right in taste for mom). I used 1 1/2 tsps. of salt. The only problem I encountered was the black urad dal remaining raw inspite of frying it for quite sometime with the mustard seeds. I would've fried it more, but for fear that I shouldn't burn the mustard seeds, I had to remove it from heat. So, my suggestion would be to grind the black urad dal as well in the mixer alongwith the other ingredients so that it no longer remains raw. I will be doing this next time onwards. Otherwise, this is wonderful and a real pleaser! Thanks for posting!
