Curry Leaves Thuvaiyal/Chutney/Dip

Curry leaves Thuvaiyal
I am a big fan of dips/chutneys but I'm too lazy to get myself to make them on a regular basis. Here's a simple recipe that I tried today. The main ingredient is Curry leaves.

Curry Leaves - about 2 cups(1 Cup is any regular cup)
Urad Dal - 2 Spoons or to taste
Channa Dal - 2 Spoons or to taste
Red Chillies - to taste or 4-5
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup,Optional
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - to taste
Tamarind paste - 1/4 spoon
Cooking Oil - 2 spoons

Heat the cooking oil in a skillet/pan and add the asafoetida. Use a medium-low flame. Next, throw in the Channa Dal and follow it with Urad Dal. Let this cook for about 2 mins. Add the curry leaves and saute again for a minute. Turn off the stove. Add the grated coconut(optional). Let it cool.Once it cools, add tamarind and salt, and blend it to a smooth paste. You may require about 1-2 tablespoons of water for blending it. Enjoy as a side to Rice along with some gravy dish like Sambhar,Rasam or dal.
