Karuvepillai Chutney | Curry Leaves Chutney

The vegetable vendor near my house always gives me a lot of curry leaves for free and most of the time I am lost as to what to cook with it! Sometimes I make this chutney or this thogayal and I regularly use it for making curry leaves hair oil too! 

This chutney tastes great, it doesn't taste bitter, it's just the right amount of curry leaves to make it a tasty chutney and a healthy side dish for idlis or dosa!
