Toor Dal Chutney / Togari Chutney

Up next on the Chutney series is a recipe that I learnt from my mom. This is my go to recipe when I run out of veggies to make any side dish for chapathis / rotis.

Toor Dal Chutney –  Yes, you heard it right ! A protein filled chutney that is absolutely delicious and an amazing combination with not only dosas / idlis but also with chapathis 🙂

Roast them well till the dal turns golden brown and till you get a nice aroma of the roasted dal. Make sure to keep stirring the mixture to make sure the dal is not over roasted  or burnt.
