  12. Hi,
    Can I use soaked and minced soya chunks for this.

    1. Yes, if you don't have soya granules, and want to go ahead with chunks.. So first pulse them in your mixer grinder jar for 8-10 seconds.. as we don't want powdered chunks and then follow soaking process.

    7. Hey.... Tried this recipe...turned out great.....My father asked me to do it again, but he asked me to skip red chilly powder, increase some green chilies (he likes spicy food) and add some Mutton masala. let me tell you it was awesome. Thanks once again for this recipe. And pls help me with any chutany which can go with Oats dosa. I am getting bored of regular coconut chutany

    8. Hey,
      Good to see you back with this lovely feedback.๐Ÿ‘ Very much appreciated.๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ‘

      Very recently posted dosa chutney, Try that, I'm sure you'll going to love that..

      Refer this - Chutney recipes

    9. Wow, Addition of Mutton Masala sounds great... My family prefers less spicy food so i normally add kashmiri red chilly powder just to give beautiful color and less spicy compared to normal red chilly ppwder... Addition of green chilies is actually great thought..๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    10. Thanks for that link and noted down two chutney recipes, I want that Tomato chutney's recipe which small idli wala's have (actually asked my regular idli wala hundred time for recipe, he is mum on it), do you know about it, pls let me know.
