A day before his magnificent effort with the willow (106 off 148 balls) on a pitch that has tested the skill and temperament of the best of batsmen from both sides, Ashwin returned excellent figures of 5/43 for his 29th five-wicket haul in the format.
India's second innings ended at 286, shortly after Ashwin reached his three-figure mark.
Enjoying a brilliant all-round outing, the seasoned off-spinner showed how to get the job done on a treacherous surface, with his exemplary knock.
Earlier, captain Virat Kohli struck 62 off 149 balls and added 96 runs for the seventh wicket with Ashwin, helping India extend their overall lead after they were reduced to 106 for six at one stage.
While Kohli showed his class before falling to Moeen Ali for the second time in the game, Ashwin also displayed remarkable skills on a challenging surface to prop up the home team.
Kohli struck seven boundaries during his stay in the middle while Ashwin found the fence 14 times and cleared it once at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
Ashwin has now scored a century and taken a five-for in a Test match thrice in his career, standing only behind English great Ian Botham, who has achieved the feat on five occasions.
For the visitors, senior spinner Moeen Ali registered figures of 4/98, while Jake Leach picked up 4/100.
