Kara/Spicy Ginger chutney (Idli Kadai Style)

Kara/Spicy chutney with Ginger(Idli Kadai Style)

Spicy Ginger chutney is a delicious chutney served with hot idli and dosa in most of the idli kadai's in Tamil nadu. I have tasted this chutney at madurai idli kadai's. Recently I tasted this chutney in Bangalore at a small take away which was delicious with a homely taste. I tried the same chutney at home and it came out awesome. This chutney is very simple to cook and a small variation from the usually prepared onion tomato chutney. This chutney is a good combination for idli and dosa. Try this idli kadai style spicy Ginger Chutney at home and Enjoy Cooking!!!
