Horsegram & Walnut Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 65 / #100chutneys

My today's chutney recipe is using Horse gram and Walnut which pairs perfectly with Idly or Dosa. This chutney is a healthy chutney as no oil is included except the tadka part which is also optional. The tomatoes are boiled along with cumin seeds and dry red chillies is further blended along with the roasted horsegram and walnuts to give a tasty and nutritious chutney. Adjust the quantity of dry red chilly according to taste bud or family's preferences. 

Ingredients :

2 Tomatoes, cut into halves 
6 Dry red chillies 
1/2 Tsp Cumin seeds 
1/4 Cup Horsegram 
4 - 5 Walnuts 
Salt to taste 

For Tadka :

1 Tsp Oil 
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds 
A sprig of Curry leaf
A pinch of Hing powder 

Method :

Boil tomatoes, cumin and dry red chillies in a bowl of water. 

Cool and peel the skin of tomatoes. Keep aside. 

Dry roast horse gram along with walnuts and grind into fine powder. 

Now add the boiled and peeled tomatoes along with dry red chillies and cumin seeds. 

Grind into a fine paste along with salt. ( Add the tomatoes boiled water for grinding if necessary ). 

Transfer the prepared chutney to a bowl. 

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