Kandi Pachadi ~ Tourdal Chutney

I got introduced to Kandi Chutney in my inter college days, they used to serve this in my college hostel in Nellore. Mom always makes chutneys with vegetables but never made with lentils. So i never got a chance to explore this. Usually this chutney comes handy when you don't have any vegetables (not even Onion, Tomato) at hand but need to make chutney. So this COVID quarantine is the perfect time that enforced me to try this chutney as I am out of vegetables. The recipe is very simple it was on hot seat on the menu today. It won everybody's heart, try this for yourself, it goes well with Idli, Dosa or White Rice. Here is the recipe, Njoy!
