Red Chutney, as the name suggests is a bright-coloured chutney which is used as a spread to make very popular Mysore dosa recipes which has origin from Mysore, Karnataka.
This popular Red Chutney is made with chana dal, urad dal, red chillies, garlic. These are the main ingredients to make it. This recipe comes along with coconut. I have used jaggery to reduce the sourness from the tamarind used.
Red Chutney is normally made little thick not very watery because then it is eat to be used as a spread for making mysore dosa. So use the required less water for grinding the chutney.
This chutney can be used also as a side dish for idli, dosa, vadai etc..,
