thoothuvalai chutney
Instructions
  1. Heat a small kadai/pan and add about 2 teaspoons of oil. When oil turns hot, add the 1 teaspoon of urad dal and wait till it turns golden. Add the whole red chillies and ginger and fry for a minute. Add the thoothuvalai leaves and fry until the leaves are wilted. Add the grated coconut and fry until the coconut is nicely toasted. Switch off and cool.
  2. Transfer the fried and cooled mixture to a mixer-grinder. Add salt and tamarind and blend to a chutney consistency adding water little at a time.
  3. Add the remaining oil to the same kadai. When the oil turns hot, add the mustard seeds and let splutter. Add the urad dal and wait until it turns golden. Pour this tempering over the chutney. Serve with idli/dosai/upma or with rice and ghee.
