This traditional condiment is at once creamy, sweet, and spicy, making it the perfect complement for starchy, earthy masala dosas. Roasted chana dal (a type of split chickpea) is available at Indian grocery stores or online. When ground into a chutney, the roasted legumes act as a binder and add their own fragrant, toasty notes. This chutney is at its best served fresh, but if you want to make it a few days in advance, leave out the cilantro leaves until you are ready to serve.
