Karibevu Chutney ( Curry leaves powder )


Curry leaves - 50 strips ( only leaves )
Fried Red chillies - 20
Tamarind - 1 tbsp
Horsegram - 1 cup
Red chana - 1 cup
Salt - to taste
Copra ( dry coconut / kernel of coconut palm ) -  2 to 3


Wash horsegram and chana. Drain the water completely. Then dry roast them.
Then roast curry leaves, salt and tamarind without adding oil.
Grate copra and dry roast it.
Finally, grind all the roasted ingredients without adding water one by one ( curry leaves + fried red chillies + chana + horsegram + salt + tamarind ). Mix them together. 
Curry leaf is ready to eat as a sidesish.

( NOTE- While grinding copra, if oil comes out from copra and is unable to make powder,  mix the powder of horsegram and chana to maintain dryness and easy to prepare copra powder.
Karibevu chutney is good for diabetic patients. )
