Dangar chutney recipe | chettinad korada recipe with step by step photos and video recipe. This is very simple, spicy, easy chutney variety popular in chettinad cuisine especially for the Vellappam/idiyappam.

I found this side dish suitable for idli/dosa/chapathi especially for the wheat rava dosa. This chettinad Korada is very similar to the onion baji without tomatoes. But this has a unique flavour of spice, tanginess and sweet tinge in it.
