  3. Hi Sowjanya,

    Nice websit, I am very impressed as I am a big fan of nice flavorful cooking too.

    In your kobbari chutney, how would you roast the chana dal ?

  4. Jayshree,

    Thanks for the nice words. I’m happy you liked my website. roasted bengal gram also called as vepudu senagapappu or putnala pappu is used in this recipe. It is available in all indian grocery stores. You do not need to roast it again. Hope that helps. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you need any help.

  6. Thanks Hina,

    I’m happy you liked the recipe. For the kobbari senagapappu chutney I use fresh coconut (pachi kobbari).

    To make soft idlys, I usually add a few tbsps of cooked rice/atukulu (poha) while grinding the idly batter, and also use 1 or 2 pinches of baking soda just before making the idlys.

    Do not add soda and ferment. It should be added right before making the idlys. Hope that helps.

  7. Hi..Mrs. Sowjanya,

    I knew about this chutney…because my mom used to do this….but unfortunately i forgot the process……because i am working in Dubai and i want to give a sudden surprize to my wife in the early morning (as she is pregnant i thought i would help her today) .

    Thanks and best regards,
