Bombay Chutney

Bombay chutney is different from regular side dishes for idly and dosa. It has been served for years in south Indian hotels and many people make it at home too. Hot idli along with this chutney is a must try. Do try and relish the taste. There are many variations in bombay chutney, some make it only with chickpea floor and add lemon when it is lukewarm. Even that variation is very yummy to try. I am not sure how it was termed bombay chutney but i learnt this recipe from my mom. Preparation is too simple and takes less time. Piping hot idly served with  chutney accompanied with hot filter coffee is one of the perfect breakfast start for the day. Overcooking would thicken the chutney, you can add water to adjust the consistency. I generally avoid masala in this , though few people add it to enhance taste. Chapathi and poori would also go well with it. I still relish my childhood memories whenever i make this, it was most liked in the family as side dish for idly. For working women and bachelors , this recipe is a add on to this list. Chickpea floor is generally avoided for people who have digestion issues. While having sudden guests or running out of vegetables, this recipe comes handy. Avoiding onions and tomatoes also done during karthika masam. So this recipe is also vegan and sattvic. As it contains no masala or more spices, kids also eat with interest.
