Hi, I'm the developer of Recipe Cart extension 👋 Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Heat a small cast-iron skillet over high until nearly smoking. Add the dal and toast, swirling the pan the entire time, until it takes on a light golden-brown color, 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately transfer the dal to a bowl or plate to prevent it from overtoasting.
In a food processor, combine the toasted dal and the rest of the ingredients and blend until quite smooth. (It will still be a little chunky.) Blend in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to achieve a thick consistency that holds together on a spoon and is not runny. Season with additional salt and lemon juice to taste.
This chutney will keep refrigerated in a covered container for up to 1 week. After that, the vivid green color will begin to lose its vibrancy, though the chutney will still taste delicious for a full 2 weeks.
