Ellu Chutney Recipe | Sesame Seeds Chutney | Ellu Thuvaiyal / Ellu Thogayal | Til Chutney | Chutney Recipes | Side dish for Idly/Dosa

When I was posting my Ellu Sadam/Sesame rice recipe, I promised to post the chutney too. As mentioned earlier in that post, my friend Angavai suggested this recipe, since it is rich in calcium. It is very good for toddlers who hate milk products. This is a very simple chutney which involves just roasting and grinding all the listed ingredients. It goes very well with Idly/Dosa, Lemon rice and Coconut rice. Without much delay let us move on to the preparation steps:
Sesame Seeds/Ellu/Til -  4 tblsp
Coconut - 1/2 Cup(grated) 
Urad dal - 1 tblsp 
Garlic - 3 cloves 
Dry Red Chillies - 3 to 4
Tamarind - small ball(gooseberry sized)
Salt - as required 
Oil - 1 tsp
1. In a pan dry roast the sesame seeds in medium flame until it crackles. Remove it from the pan and allow it to cool completely. In the same pan, add some oil and roast the urad dal, garlic, red chilli and tamarind for few minutes.
2. Finally, add the coconut and roast until the raw smell of the coconut leaves. Allow everything to cool completely. In a mixie, firstly powder the sesame seeds, dry red chilli and urad dal.
3.Then add all the other ingredients like garlic, tamarind and grated coconut. Grind it to a smooth paste by adding a teaspoon of water. Add required salt while grinding.
4. If you prefer the thogayal/thuvaiyal kind of chutney then don't add more water and let it be thick. This thogayal goes well with steamed idlies, Lemon rice and Coconut rice.
5. If you prefer running/watery consistency then add required water and adjust the salt. Now, temper it with oil, mustard and curry leaves. Pour it over the chutney. 
The delicious and healthy chutney is ready to be served. This watery chutney goes well with Dosa as shown below.
Points to remember:
  • I usually do not temper for thogayal(thick) kind of chutney. If you prefer you can temper.
  • The number of chillies can be used as per your preference.
  • If you want to reduce the coconut, you can use just 1/4 cup of grated coconut.
Warm Regards,
