Chutney is one of my favorite condiments. It’s highly adaptable to what might be in season, it can be spiced up or dressed down, and can be the star of a recipe or a nice topping. The term chutney is a pretty loose one that can encompass many different types of condiments that traditionally used in Indian cuisine (called Chatni in Hindi). However, chutney was picked up by the British during colonization. They used the term chutney and here we are.
This fruit chutney is my base for all cooked fruit-based chutneys. There are recipes out there for coconut, herb, and peanut- the possibility of chutneys is quite endless (this is a good start to chutney.) I primarily use chutney to pair with curry but there’s a myriad of ways to use this wonderful condiment. Read more and see the recipe.
