Vegetable Chutney

When it comes to chutney, I always prefer to add veggies to make it healthy and tasty. This is one of the easiest way to make our family members to eat all vegetables. I have included only three types of vegetables as it is easily available in the markets. Simple, tasty and nutritious side dish for Idly and Dosa. This goes perfect with Kuzhipaniyaram too. 

Ingredients :

1 Capsicum, Chopped
1 Big Carrot, Chopped
1/2 Cup Cabbage, Finely chopped
2 Onions, Chopped
3-4 Dry red chillies ( Adjust according to taste bud )
Salt to taste 
2 Tsp Oil 

For Thalimpu :

2 Tsp Gingelly oil
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
1 Tsp Urad dal 
A pinch of Hing
Curry leaves

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onions.

Saute it till the color changes and add the chopped cabbage followed by capsicum and carrot.

Saute it for 3 -5 minutes in a medium flame.

Remove the veggies and add dry red chillies.

Fry it for a minute and add it to the sauteed veggies.

Grind it into smooth paste by adding required amount of salt and water.

Meanwhile, heat gingelly oil in a same pan and add Mustard seeds.

Once, it starts spluttering, add urad dal, curry leaves and a pinch of hing.

Now add the ground chutney and cook it for couple of minutes.

Remove from the flame and serve.

Serving Options :

Serve with Hot Idli, Dosa and Kuzhipaniyaram.
