Procedure edit

  1. Dry roast the channa dal until browned. Allow it to cool.
  2. Grind the roasated dal, coconut, chiles, tamarind paste, cilantro, ginger paste, and salt in a blender with as little water as possible. For best results the final consistency must be somewhere between a coarse and smooth paste.
  3. For seasoning, heat the oil in a small ladle. Add the mustard seeds to hot oil, and allow them to crackle. When the crackling starts subsiding, add the asafoetida and the curry leaves, and stir for a few seconds.
  4. Add the seasoning mixture to the chutney, and mix well.
