Ivy Gourd Chutney

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
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 ChutneyFresh Green chana chutneyRaw Tamarind ChutneyRed Chilly ChutneyPineapple Chutney in M/WHottt chilly chutneys and the list goes on...
  • Please check what my dearest friend   who is a great blogger too has written about  me in her words:
    Nivedita has so many mouthwatering recipes on her blog, I have tried so many of them but especially she is expert in making chutneys...I should give her a nick name here..." Chutney queen"...:-) Nive please don't mind..this is just for fun..but let me tell you  recipes are lip smacking..Trust me !!,
    Thanks Jagruti for the title.. and this chutney is to keep my title rocking :-)))
    Check her site  for more details...  

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

Keep Smiling,
