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.


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.
