Do try it and you will not regret it. Today we will learn how to make cabbage chutney for idli, dosa following this easy recipe.

  7. Hi Padhu
    Please clarify the term top it to something to double season the chutney or actually to thicken it?

    1. Top up seasoning is nothing but seasoning again at the end. It is double seasoning the chutney for added taste. That's all.

  8. I will try the recipe without onion..
