Curry Leaves Chutney - Karuveppilai Chutney | Easy Chutney Recipes

Curry Leaves Chutney Recipe
Curry Leaves is used for most tempering in south indian cooking, but its always cornered while eating.I make curry leaves podi often and stock it up. But I wanted to try karuveppilai chutney for a change and it turned out so good that  I am planning to make it more often. Last week when I saw fresh curry leaves I made this chutney and podi on the same day and clicked it :) I served it with mini oothapams but goes well even with idlis.

My Notes:

  • You can even add a tsp of channa dal while roasting urad dal.
  • Adding gram dal gives a creamy texture to the chutney.
  • Amma says adding milk is optional, but sure gives a richness and creaminess to the pongal.
