Chana Dal Chutney (Lentil Dip)

Chana Dal Chutney (Lentil Dip): quick and easy Indian Dip/Chutney using roasted lentils, yogurt and spices on top.

Although I love Coconut chutney the most to pair with south Indian delicacies however most of the time when I make them without planning, I’m always short of fresh or dry coconut.

Hence this chutney came into existence as it’s quick, equally delicious and most of the ingredients are found in our everyday Indian Kitchen.

I not only eat this chutney with Indian food however I love to eat it with any kind of bread.

Serves: 4

Serving Suggestion:

This chutney is either eaten cold or at room temperature. Can be stored for a  week in the fridge. Serve with Idlee/Dosa/VadaOR Rice OR Toasted Bread
