The chutney when made with a blend of good combination of ingredients is a potent accompaniment to any main dish. You will never be faced with dearth of ideas to whip up a chutney.
Chutney is nothing but a sauce or a dip or something like a hummus that can be had with practically any food.
As I have already mentioned in couple of my earlier posts that my mother-in-law optimally used her kitchen supplies and this chutney and many others that will be shared in the blog sooner are one of her famous chutney recipes.
Vegetables from the gourd family have a fleshy part in the center along with seeds. The snake gourd has very tender seeds in between fleshy center which is generally discarded . Whenever we make curry or sabzi using this gourd, the center is scooped out.
Dal or lentil, chillies, the tender seeds of the snake gourd, and coconut is roasted first and then ground into a tasty chutney that can be served with hot steamed rice, idli, dosa, bread, chappatis or even used as a dip.
