Pumpkin Peel & Coconut Chutney (For Idly & Dosa)


I prepared this pumpkin peel & coconut chutney for dosa few days before. The combo tasted yummy. This participates in my event "Best Out of waste".

Ingredients :

1. Pumpkin Peel - 1 Cup
2. Coconut - 1/4 Cup
3. Fried Gram (Pottu Kadalai) - 1/4 Cup
4. Green Chilly - 2 or adjust to your taste
5. Tamarind Pulp - Little qty
6. Salt - Needed Qty
7. Mustard - 1/2 tsp
8. Oil - 6 tsp




Procedure :

1. Add 2 tsp of oil to the pan. Fry the washed peels well. Keep aside.
2. Now, add another 2 tsp of oil. Add cut chillies and fried gram in low flame till the fried gram turns brown.
3. Add coconut and immediately switch off the stove. Keep the pan as such for 2 minutes.
4. Transfer the contents to mixer jar along with pumpkin peels, tamarind pulp and salt. Grind with little water to coarse consistency.
5. Heat remaining oil and add mustard. Once the mustard get popped, add to the chutney.
6. Enjoy with crisp dosa or soft idly.
