Have you ever prepared anything as Indianised version of chutney or side dish using Leeks?? if not just go throw this interesting spicy as well as mildly tangy chutney with leeks...My H love crispy dosas and he always need two or three side dishes to enjoy either idli or dosas...Sometimes i have to break my head to cook up something new of else revisited chutney to serve him happily, this time i prepared this delicious chutney or thuvaiyal using leeks,ginger,garlic,coriander seeds, curry leaves,red chillies and tamarind..Needless to say this thuvaiyal tastes marvellous as side dish for dosas,with sambhar rice and i loved it..Sending to Healing Foods-Ginger & Garlic guest hosted by Sara, event by Siri.
