Tamil translation for sesame chutney is 'Ellu thovaiyal' or 'Yellu thovayal'.
I use black sesame seeds to make this chutney.It should not be watery like coconut chutney.After grinding , you should be able to make a ball out of it. That is the perfect consistency.
Sesame - 2 tbsp
shredded coconut - 1 tbsp
Dry Red chillies - 4
garlic - 1 pearl
cumin - 1/4 tsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
Tamarind - 1 inch
curry leaves - 1 brig
olive oil - 1 tsp
Dry roast the sesame seeds , till they start splutter. Take care not to char them.
Add 1 tsp olive oil in the pan and roast the dry red chillies.
Using a small jar in mixie / blender , grind all the items together after they become cool .
Add a little water only. You will get a lemon size ball of sesame chutney.
It can be served as a side dish with any 'variety rice' like lemon rice , coconut rice or tamarind rice.
This chutney stays good for 2 days (without refrigerator) , if you roast all the given items and make chutney.
