Broccoli & Dal Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 36 / #100chutneys

Broccoli is a green vegetable which belongs to cabbage family and also have florets like Cauliflower / Gobi. This vegetable have dozens of health benefits and can also be used in our regular cooking. Many interesting recipes like Broccoli rice, Broccoli curry, Broccoli paratha etc can be prepared and in my today's chutney series, I have used this vegetable along with 3 varieties of dal and ground nuts to prepare a healthy and tasty chutney. This chutney pairs perfectly with Idly and Dosa. And also, this delicious chutney can be served with plain rice, Rasam rice and Curd rice.

Ingredients :

1 Tbsp Oil 
1 Cup Broccoli, finely chopped 
1 Tbsp Horse gram / Kollu 
1 Tbsp Chana dal / Kadalai Parupu
1 Tbsp Ground nuts / Peanuts 
1 Tbsp Urad dal 
2 Tbsp Coconut, grated 
3 - 4 Dry red chillies ( Adjust according to taste bud ) 
Salt to taste 

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add horse gram followed by chana dal, urad dal and ground nuts.

Fry until it changes its colour in a low flame.

Now add the remaining ingredients except salt and saute until the broccoli gets cooked.

Once done, remove from the flame and cool the ingredients.

Grind into fine paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

Transfer it to a bowl and keep aside.

For tadka, heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and hing powder.

Fry and add it to the prepared chutney.


Serving Options :

Serve with Idly, Dosa or Rice.
