Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Ivy Gourd!!! I am not much fond of this vegetable. I like to have it fried with lot of grated coconut... But the other day, mom prepared chutney out of this... and it was very tasty..
When it comes to chutneys I love to have any kind of chutney... I have posted many recipes also like.. Raw Mango Chutney, Fresh Green chana chutney, Raw Tamarind Chutney, Red Chilly Chutney, Pineapple Chutney in M/W, Hottt chilly chutneys and the list goes on...
Here is the recipe of the chutney:
Ivy gourd - 12 to 15
Green chilli -2 to 3
Cumin seeds -1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Salt to taste
Jaggery - 1 tbsp
Tamarind - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Wash and pat dry the ivy gourd.
cut them into slices.
Heat kadai and add the oil(actually mom says to deep fry but being health conscious(am I????), I thought of shallow frying it.
and the slices. Fry these on medium fire. After they become little crispy(it may take around 8 to 10 minutes), add green chilly, cumin seeds, curry leaves and tamarind.
Fry for some more time.
Transfer it into a plate and allow it to cool.
Add salt and grind it till you get the chutney texture. (as per your liking)
Adjust the seasoning..
Chutney is ready to serve with anything you like.
I had it with Methi Paratha and peppered curd
