Kovaikai Chutney Version 2

Kovaikai Chutney Version 2
After finishing my pooja I was waiting anxious for my hubby to return for work as he has promised to prepare Rava Dosai for dinner.since my son goes to tennis class I was sitting in front of my baloney just relaxing when the white clouds were blocking the sky. There was no hint of rain just a pleasant warm evening..the rumbling of the thunder started and the wind howled. The falling droplets of rain send chill down my spin...oh not again but a perfect climate to smuggle in thick blanket and sleep soundly....wait I haven't prepare dinner and my hubby is not back yet. I had small quantity of kovaikai in my pantry and wasn't sure what to do with it. I decide to prepare chutney with it and would be great with sambar and the crisp rava dosai. I have already post a recipe on this but now the method varies a bit...here Crispy Rava Dosai with Sambar and kovaikai chutney from my kitchen to yours..sit back and enjoy this meal with your loved ones.
