Vengaya Vadagam Chutney Recipe | Side dish for Idli Dosa

Vengaya Vadagam Chutney Recipe
Chutneys are always handy during our weekday busy morning hours where we cant make elaborate breakfast. Amma makes this chutney often and I love the vengaya vadagam flavour the most in this chutney. This is best with soft oothappam.

My Notes:

  • You can get vengaya vadagam in supermarkets like nilgiris. Do not add more as the chutney will become bitter.The vadagam comes in lemon sized balls, you can shred it and use when required. Keep refrigerated until use.
  • The vadagam can be used for seasoning for kara kulambufish kulambuand even for paruppu urundai kulambu.
  • This suits best for both idli and dosa.The chutney keeps well only for a day so consume it accordingly.
