Chana Dal Chutney Recipe: How To Make Kadalebele Chutney

By: Ajitha Ghorpade

Chana dal chutney is a South Indian home-made dish. It is usually prepared as a breakfast side dish which can be served with the main course. The chutney has many variations to it; this particular chutney is made with roasted chana dal and urad dal as the main ingredients.

Unlike other chutneys which do not require the use of stove, this chana dal chutney requires the lentils to be roasted well. This is what makes the dish super yummy and finger-licking. The final step of tempering the chutney should be considered important as the crunchiness of the tadka ingredients makes this dish a super-hero from a hero.

Roasted chana dal chutney is usually served with idlis, vadas and dosas. It can also be mixed with rice and eaten. The tangy flavour, the aroma because of the tamarind and the tadka make one want more.

Chana dal chutney is quick and easy to prepare at home. So, if you'd like to try our version of the roasted chana dal chutney, watch the video and also follow the detailed step-by-step procedure containing images.
