vengayam thalicha thengai chutney

Vengayam thalicha thengai chutney means coconut chutney tempered with small onions. The flavour is so different that it deserves a separate post. If you have not tried yet, must try this one.

I have posted this one earlier, but thought this post will reach more as separate chutney instead of my chutney idli post. So when I made this morning, shot to share. Many of you might known this, but for those who haven’t, so not under estimate the flavour and taste of this chutney. I have made this kothi chutney (boiled chutney) which means just pour the ground chutney to give a boil. But you can add small onion tadka to regular coconut chutney you make and try too. It will amaze you how different it is.

I love this chutney’s flavour as we give a boil with the tadka, the tempered item’s flavour gets more incorporated. And this gives more volume as you can add lots of water and when boiled, it thickens. So, perfect for larger crowd too. We love this chutney with hot soft idli. But goes well easily with dosa, upma, paniayrams as well. Do try and let me know how you liked it.

Just make sure to add lots of water so that the chutney is in pouring consistency after you give it a boil. Otherwise it becomes so thick and it wont taste or look good. So add enough water while pouring into the kadai as it thickens so fast. As soon as you pour, keep stir and switch off to avoid lumps.
