About Roasted Gram Chutney

Coconut and groundnuts are the two major ingredients to be avoided during dieting days but being in South India, it is very difficult as few breakfast dishes like pongal, upma, dosa, adai etc tastes heavenly only with coconut chutney. And particularly, when it comes to pongal my family expects coconut chutney to be served along with it. So, to make the chutney also healthy, I used to prepare it with roasted gram ( without coconut ) which tastes almost the same like our coconut chutney and need to mention that, it looks creamy too. The green chillies and ginger are sauteed in this recipe to give an extra flavor but it can also be added without sauteing, so that addition of 1 tsp olive oil can also be avoided.
