This delicious Karam recipe is from Meena's 'cookingpleasures' blog. Her karam picture looked so good ,seemed simple and traditional. You know me , I am a sucker for any homely recipes. So I thought why not give it a try !! I made some changes like lot less chillies and chana dal for Besan and roasting all before grinding. Took exactly 15 mins to make it. Tasted surprisingly delicious with rice. I must make some idlis and dosas now to go with Karam !!
Thank you , Meena !!!


To Saute`:
4 Red Dry Chillies
1 1/2 tbsp Chana Dal
1/2 tbsp Coriander seeds
1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/2 Big Onion
1 Tbsp Dry Coconut
1-2 Garlic
Few Curry Leaves

Grind With:
Tamarind juice
1/2 tsp sugar
enough water to thin

1 tsp Oil and Ghee
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
Curry Leaves
1 Red Chilly


1. Saute` all the ingredients with 1 tsp oil seperately and grind with others to a paste.
2. Season with 1tbsp oil and ghee and serve!! That was easy!!:))

Serve with DOSAS !!

Wow !!! I bet it will be yummy with dosa.I make dosas atleast 3 days in a week for dinner and so some new chutney for that is always worth a try.
