How to make Ellu Chutney Recipe - Sesame Seeds Chutney Recipe

  • When you are ready to make the Ellu Chutney (Sesame Seeds Chutney Recipe), we can soak tamarind in very little water. Hot water is best as you can extract more.
  • We will have to dry roast urad dal until lightly. Add in the white black sesame seeds, dry chilies, and saute until aromatic.
  • Remove and allow to cool down.
  • In the mixer jar, add fresh coconut, roasted peanuts, and tamarind extract along with salt and pulse it a couple of times.
  • Next, add the roasted sesame seeds along with dry red chilies and urad dal.
  • Pulse it first to make sure it gets powdered well.
  • Next, add water as required and grind to a fine paste.
  • Make sure all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Transfer the chutney to a serving bowl.

Tempering the Sesame Seeds Chutney

  • Heat a small pan with oil, and add curry leaves, mustard, and urad dal. Saute well.
  • When the mustard splutters, pour it over the chutney.
  • Serve this as a side dish for Idli/ Dosa of your choice.
  • I served this with Masala Kuzhi Paniyaram.
