One of those recipes that I make whenever I run out of vegetables or coconut to prepare a chutney to go with a South Indian breakfast like idly or dosa, is besan (chickpea flour) chutney or senagapindi pachadi. Chickpea flour is my trusted stand by when unexpected guests arrive.
A unique recipe with the combined goodness of tamarind and besan (gluten free flour that is high in protein, fibre and low carb). It’s all in the seasoning and roasting of chick pea flour till you achieve that golden brown color and you experience that heady fragrant smell which decides the final flavor of this pacchadi. Eat it with idlis and you have an easy way to fill up on protein and fibre in one light, tasty, vegan breakfast or dinner meal.
