as i mentioned previously, idli chutney is known for its consistency which is more liquidy as compared to traditional coconut based chutneys. there is a reason for its consistency. generally, the idli’s are semi-solid and you need some liquid condiment like sambar to be easily served with it. having said that, some prefer just chutney without multiple condiments to be served with idli. moreover, it is not feasible to prepare 2-3 condiments during the busy hours of morning breakfast and also it is economical. hence the idea of chutney recipe was evolved with a sambar consistency, and the idli’s are dipped and soaked and served with it. this is very common in a metropolitan fast food centre like bangalore and mumbai.

furthermore, some easy and important tips and suggestions for a perfect idli chutney recipe. firstly, because of the liquid consistency, you have to add extra spice, salt and sourness to balance it. in addition, you may have to add more roasted chana dal which adds smooth consistency. secondly, once the chutney is prepared it may soon thicken due to the roasted chana dal absorbing moisture. hence you may need to add water and bring it to desired consistency before serving. lastly, i have used tamarind in this recipe for the sourness, which can be replaced with the sour raw mangoes.
