Putnis is a curd based condiment of the south-indian Udupi cuisine, made with coconut oil, mustard seeds, red chillis, and turmeric powder. It can be used as a substitute for chutney and is usually served along with idli, rice or soaked beaten rice.

Preparation[edit]

Mustard seeds and dry red chilli are seasoned with turmeric powder while frying in coconut oil and are then added to curd. Putnis can be made instantly in this way.
