Besan Chutney

Besan Chutney,goes good with dosa and idly.We generally make coconut chutney,peanut chutney,tomato chutney etc,but this besan chutney is different.I knew this chutney only after marriage,my Mom-In-Law makes this chutney for Plain dosa and this is my Hubby's favourite,so called my mom-in-law and asked her how to make this,tried and turned of well.

1.Soak the tamrind in 2 cups of water for 10 mins and squeeze the tamrind pulp and take the juice,drain away the waste and put aside.
2.Now add salt,turmeric powder and a cup of besan to tamrind juice and mix well so that you dont have any lumps of besan,now put this besan mixture on flame ans boil it on medium flame and mix in between.

4.Once the besan mixture is boiled and cooked add the tempring,mix well and check for the seasonings,adjust if needed.
5.Check for the consistency and turn off the heat when done.Garnish it with Coriander leaves(Optional).Be cautious while making this chutney as it may stick to the pan and burn in the bottom if not stir properly and cooked on medium flame.
