Ulundu chutney recipe, urad dal white chutney

Food

Ulundu chutney goes well with breakfast & dinner like idli dosa. It’s flavor is so unique and quite a different one from the regular chutney we make.

Though I make the onion tomato chutney as default as it is loved by all at home, I also like to break the boring routine with a slightly different variation.

So came across this white chutney with onion, garlic and urad dal. Slightly adapted it and made this one.

Ingredients

I used quite a lot of urad dal in this recipe, so the texture was very thick as ulundu gives you a lot of volume. So I am adjusting the recipe to give you the right serving size.

Variations

Chilli – instead of green chilli, you can use dry red chillies.

Garlic – use ginger in place of garlic for another flavor.

  • Spice level – Adjust chilli according to it’s variety and your spice preference. Some are really spicy, some not at all. So make sure to adjust the numbers accordingly.
  • Texture – I usually love my urad dal chutney slightly on coarse side and thick. If you like it smooth thin & runny, you can try that as well.

Top tip

Fresh chutney always tastes better.

Make sure to roast for long time instead of roasting in high flame. Otherwise it may look slimy and taste weird. Especially when you are dealing with whole urad dal.
