Chana Dal Chutney (Pachi Senaga Pachadi)

This is very easy chutney that tastes so delicious with rice. And it tastes more like Toor Dal Chutney (Kandi Pachadi) and also has a similar texture. Moreover, it uses exactly same ingredients like Toor Cal Chutney in the exact same measurements. Try it and you’ll definitely like this. Just a little variation!! This time I added a few garlic flakes to the chutney.


  • 1 cup Pachi Senaga Pappu (Bengal Gram, Chana Dal)
  • 5 or 6 dry Red Chilies
  • 1 tsp Tamarind Pulp
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 2 Garlic Flakes (optional)
  • Salt

Heat a pan and dry roast chana dal + red chilies + cumin seeds. Keep aside to cool.

When it becomes cold grind into a fine (a little coarse is ok) paste by adding tamarind pulp + garlic flakes and salt. Add little water as needed.

Enjoy this yummy pachadi with steaming hot rice and a dollop of ghee. Yummy!! Rasam is the best combination with this pachadi.

This looks so tasty Uma. I can imagine it's taste with hot rice and a dash of oil or ghee. Garlic is good for winter.
