Karam Chutney is one of the most commonly used item as a side dish for idly and dosa. I learned this recipe from my Amma. This is my all-time favourite chutney. This chutney will be a little spicy but you can adjust the spices according to your taste. It is very simple and easy chutney that you can prepare in 20 minutes.
