Fried Gram Chutney Recipe

Most Americans do not know what fried gram is and will have difficulty finding exactly what they need in a regular store. That is why I always suggest going to ethnic markets. You can also buy online and get better deals and save some time. You can either buy roasted/fried gram/dal or make it yourself in a hot wok with no oil and do not make them brown or black. I have been looking for a vendor in USA for them online with zero luck, so if anyone has any info on that please email me.

In South India, finding roasted/fried gram/dal is very easy. This recipe is not a traditional one in my household and the reason I included it was because chutney’s are very important in India. We use them with many different fried foods and breads. My favorite dip to this chutney is bonda/mysore buji balls (please excuse my Hindi as I rarely use it as Telugu is the language more common to me in Hyder)
