SUTTA KATHRIKAI CHUTNEY | BRINJAL CHUTNEY FOR IDLI,DOSA

Print Friendly and PDF Yum


sutta kathrikai chutney

My mom makes this chutney for Idli.I tried last week with some slight changes.My husband who hates brinjal loved this chutney a lotThumbs-up.Thanks to my momSmile.My neighbour told me another method of making this brinjal chutney for rice.But I tried that for dosa and it was also equally good.I’ve given the recipes of both and try any based on ur liking.

My method

Ingredients
  • Brinjal – 1 no (Big size)
  • Cooking Oil – 1 tsp
  • Red chilly – 5- 6 nos
  • Urad dal - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1.5 tsp
  • Tamarind – 1 big seed
  • Hing – a pinch
  • Salt  & water – As needed
To temper:
  • Coconut oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Hing /Asafetida – A pinch
Method:
  • I used MW for roasting / burning  the brinjal.Slit cut the brinjal into 4 pieces and brush with oil.
  • MW high for 3-5 mins.(adjust acc to ur MW , I kept for 5 mins.)
  • The skin will come out easily and the brinjal gets cooked.U can do the same on stove top.
  • Let it cool.Then remove the skin and set aside.
  • Heat a kadai with a little oil and roast the mustard , red chillies with urad dal and hing.
  • Grind the brinjal, redchillies ,hing and tamarind along with salt and little water.
  • Finally add the roasted urad dal  and  mustard seeds ..coarse grind it.Add water if necessary.[Be sure the brinjal gets mashed completely.Only the urad dal should be coarse].Temper it at the end.
  • Serve with idli/Dosa by mixing with Sesame /Gingely oil.

TIPS
The same chutney can be had with rice by grinding with  1/2 tsp of pepper and 3 flakes of garlic along with the above said ingredients.Serve it topped with ghee!!

Method II

Ingredients
  • Brinjal – 1 no (Big size)
  • Green chilly – 2 –3 nos
  • Tamarind – Small berry size
  • Salt & water – as needed.
To season :
  • Coconut oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Hing /Asafetida – A pinch
Method:
  • Follow the step 1 –4 given in the previous method.
  • Soak the tamarind in little water and extract the juice from it.
  • Now grind the brinjal with salt to make a paste by adding the tamarind extract.Add little water if required.
  • Then add the green chillies and run the mixie once or twice.
  • Take care the green chilly should not be ground to a paste.
  • Heat a kadai with coconut oil and season with the ingredients given above.
  • Finally add the chutney to the kadai and switch off immediately.
  • Leave the chutney in the kadai for sometime.Once its cool, serve with Idly/Dosa with gingely oil or Rice with ghee.
