Walnut chutney Recipe

Walnut is a healthy tree nut, which has perfect package of protein, healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, and many vitamins and minerals. My little one always refuse to eat walnuts.  If I add that in smoothie also, she will find that and never touch that smoothie again. One of my friend shared this chutney recipe sometime back. I tried it today and it came out so well. My little One had it and she liked it too :).. It taste somewhat similar to peanut chutney. Some doesn't like to eat raw walnuts (like my little one), just try this recipe, you will see the change ;) .. It's great way to include that healthy nut to your diet. It goes well with idly , dosa , savory fritters and vadas. Store it in refrigerator in air tight container , it wil stay good upto 3 days. I made it little more spicy, you can adjust red chilli according to your taste buds.

1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbsp coconut (optional)
1 tbsp Fried gram dal /  Pottukadalai
