Curry leaves chutney recipe is a yummy and easy to make healthy chutney which you can have with all south Indian breakfast dishes or anything you like.
  • Curry leaves – 1 cup
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Whole Red chillies – 2
  • Urad dal – 1 tbsp
  • Grated coconut – 2 tbsp
  • Tamarind -1/2 tsp paste
  • Salt as needed
  • For the seasoning (optional)
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – ¾ tsp
  1. First of all wash the curry leaves and dry them completely.
  2. Next, take a pan and heat oil in it and add urad dal, red chillies. Cook for some time.
  3. Add curry leaves and cook in low flame for 2-3 minutes. Now add tamarind, grated coconut, salt and lightly cook for a few more seconds.
  4. Now remove the pan from flame and let it cool.
  5. Once it cools down, grind it to a smooth paste adding little water as required. 6 I like thick consistency but you can adjust according to your liking. Use water accordingly.
  6. For seasoning, heat oil, add mustard seeds and mix this seasoning in the chutney. Mix well and serve with anything you like. This step is optional as chutney tastes good without the seasoning too. It's as flavourful and yummy without the seasoning.
You can add amla or gooseberry instead of tamarind to make it even healthier.
Add little hing or asafoetida if you like. It increases digestive properties.
There is another way to make it by using chana dal, ginger and red chillies with curry leaves.
