Urad Dal Chutney/Ulutham Paruppu chutney for idli and dosai

Urad dal chutney is a simple accompaniment for idli and dosa. The distinct aroma of roasted Urad dal makes me eat it with rice when nothing else gets down my throat. In my family mostly we prefer this chutney for travel, because it will stay for long time. You can make this chutney without coconut also. It will accompany with variety rice also. I bet, it’s distinct aroma and flavor will make you gulp down more idly/ dosa than you normally eat. This chutney is a simple one and can be made in a jiffy.
