    Would it impact the taste terribly if other oil was used? Like regular vegetable oil? Thanks for posting the recipe!

    You can use any other vegetable oil too. It will not impact the taste much. It is just that sesame oil lends an unique taste to these chutneys. But other oils too are okay as long as they don't have an overpowering aroma. For instance peanut or sunflower oil won't affect the taste adversely.

    Yes gingelly oil will work. As far as you understand, gingelly oil is not much different from sesame oil. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Yes you can reduce the quantity of jaggery. Half cup jaggery for one cup ginger works fine too though the sweet taste will be more subtle.

    Thanq. This is a sweet chutney is it? Not like the usual idli / dosa chutney?

    made the chutney for adai for dinner. I added a little less of jaggery as my husband prefers little spicier chutney.
    Thanks for an easy and very tangy tasty recipe.

    es. It is kinda sweet sour and spicy. You get the hotness from red chillies, ginger and slight bitter taste from fenugreek, sourness from tamarind and sweetness from jaggery.
