डाळीच्या पीठाची चटणी (Chickpea flour chutney)

My mother-in-law makes this chutney. In marathi we call chickpea flour as डाळीचे पीठ or बेसन.
As I had said before, chutney can be dry or wet, this chickpea flour chutney has a yogurt base . My husband loves this chutney and finally after making it for few times, got the recipe perfect. It goes great with your everyday lunch of  Roti, Sabzi, Dal and Rice.

1 Cup Yogurt
1/4 Cup Chickpea Flour
Sugar and salt as per taste
1 1/2 tsp Chili powder

For tempering
1 1/2 tbsp Canola oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric
Pinch of Asafoetida

Beat yogurt in a bowl add sugar and salt, mix well. Sprinkle chickpea flour evenly over yogurt. Now sprinkle chili powder evenly over chickpea flour(most importantly, do not mix this mixture).
For tempering heat oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Add turmeric and asafoetida. Pour this tempering over the above chutney mixture evenly.
Now cover the bowl with a plate and keep aside for around 45 min or up to 1 hr. Later mix it and serve.
