If you are not willing to make sambhar and other stuffs to complement your South Indian platter then this one is sure a heart winning quick and yummy side dish for you.
If you don't have roasted chickpeas then can use raw Chana dal. Just roast it in little oil till aromatic then soak in little water for 10 mins then grind along with other ingredients. This way gives more rustic flavour to your chutney.
