Ellu chutney

This is one of my MIL's favourite chutney. So it gets done in our house very often. I ate this for the first time after my marriage when my MIL had done this with Akki Rotti and have loved this since.. 

You need:
Til - 2 tbsp (black or white)
Dry Red chillies - 8 
Tamarind - 1 small goli size
Coconut - 4 tbsp
Jaggery - 1 tbsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp

Heat a pan
Dry roast the till on medium flame for 1 - 2 mins till you start getting a nice fragarance from the till
Remove and keep aside
To the same pan add urad dal and fry till light golden in colour
Remove and keep aside
Add 2 tsp oil and fry the red chillies. Remove and keep aside
Add coconut and roast for 1 min on med flame
Remove and grind everything together.
Serve with hot idli with a dollop of ghee / coconut oil on top.

This is off to Jagruti's potluck party.
