 Is not the movie chutney name sounds interesting? Yeah, this wonderful hero Jeera acts almost in all movies in our day to day cooking. None of our Asian cooking is completed without this hero’s entry. We all know the benefits of this hero that’s the reason we are using it on everyday movies (cooking).

This fantastic movie story was given by one of my RH friend’s wife on watsapp group for who I posted the ginger cardamom tea post.  When she said the movie name, I was quite interested to know the story(recipe) in detail. Without further delay got the story(recipe) and tried that weekend for rava dosai.. I should say it tasted awesome..

As makkal wants me to release lots of chutney’s, side dish movie and non veg related movies will be releasing those types often. For my other movies with chutney

 Movie Name: ஜிகு ஜிகு சீரக சட்னி 

Cuisine: Cooking time: 25 mins Serving: 3 people
Thala Thalapathi ( Main Ingredients): 
  • Jeera- 3 tbsp
  • Chenna dal- 1 tbsp
  • Urad dal- 1 tbsp
  • Moong dal – 1 tsbp( I have used toor dal)
  • Red chillies- 3
  • Coconut- ½ cup
  • Tamarind- gooseberry size
  • Salt- as needed
To Fight(To Temper):
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Oil- 2 tsp
  • Onion-finely chopped 1 tbsp optional)
  • Make sure all our ingredients are ready. Heat a pan without adding oil and dry roast all the three dals together until it turns  brown(don’t burn) and transfer to a plate.

  • To the same pan, add jeera and dry roast it until nice aroma comes from it and jeera changes it color slightly. Transfer it to the dal plate. Next dry roast Red chillies too..

  • In a mixer jar, take the coconut pieces, dry red chillies, tamarind and salt and blend it coarsely. To that add the roasted dal’s and jeera grind it by adding little water to make chutney consistency.

  • Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds. When it splutters, add chopped onions +curry leaves. Once the onion turns golden brown transfer it to the chutney..
Serve it with dosa or idly… yum yum jeera chutney is ready!!!! I served it with Rava Dosa it was yummy…                                                                                                                    

  •  Though the original recipe is moong dal, I used toor dal as I was running out of moong dal.
  •  My RH said the Jeera flavour is dominating, though personally I loved the chutney. So if you don’t like the smell you can use 2 tbsp of jeera and continue with the rest.
  •  You can use grated coconut too..
  •  Adding of onion while tempering is optional, as our family loves onion in chutney we use to follow that method.
Hope you love it..Watch(try) it on your Kitchen Theatre.
