on a visit to his home once, he made this chutney along with us. this curry leaves chutney stays good for a week in the fridge and our friend used to make this chutney in large amounts and would have it with breads and rotis. we liked the chutney so much that i have made it many times now.

apart from curry leaves which is the main ingredient, fresh coconut and roasted bengal gram (chana dal) are also added. an easy chutney to make. there is no tempering done and this is also a no onion and no garlic recipe.

in hindi, curry leaves are known as kadi patta. curry leaves are added to most tadka or tempering in south indian dishes. they add their aroma and flavor to the dish in ways which you can only know once you have made and had a dish tempered with curry leaves.

curry leaves are known for their digestive properties. they are also good for improving eyesight, in reducing weight and excellent for healthy & shiny hair. this is the reason they are also added to coconut oil which is applied on the head.

curry leaves are an essential ingredient in south indian cuisine and nowadays many people in north india also have started using these leaves. although, it is not so easy to get these healthy leaves in north india unless you have your own tree.

this curry leaves chutney goes very well with most south indian tiffin snacks. i had served the kadi patta chutney with rava idli.

one of the easiest way you can use curry leaves in your diet is either add them in your tempering for dals, rasam, sambar or make this easy curry leaves chutney.
