This chutney is actually made my mother, I am merely chronicling it here so I have the recipe handy whenever I want to make it.
¼ kg suran,
1-2 tbsp roasted and pounded red chillies,
¼ tsp roasted and powdered fenugreek seeds,
1 tbsp tamarind pulp,
Salt to taste,
½ cup oil,
1 large pinch of asafoetida,
1 tsp mustard seeds,
1 tbsp urad dal,
3 halved red chillies
Peel and chop the suran. Cook till it is well done. Grind this with the roasted and pounded red chillies, powdered fenugreek seeds, salt to taste and the tamarind pulp.
Heat oil and add the urad dal, mustard seeds, asafoetida and halved red chillies. When the mustard crackles add the suran paste and fry it well. Serve this with idlis, dosas or even plain rice and curd.
