Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
How are you? Festival time ladies. More work for us, more fun for family members, specially kids. All are waiting for the sweets, snacks and special main course.

Wait, I am not posting any special food for the party. Today I am here with a very simple side dish. Chutney is the basic item in a thali in any Indian food.
If you have not tried it before, you will really like it. Its different.
And can you guess with what we had this spicy chutney?? We had it with PAAPDIS. :-)
I got this recipe from my closest, dearest friend Renu, thanks dear :-) 
Jagruti has named me "CHUTNEY QUEEN" Trying to keep the title :-)

Coming to the recipe,

We need very few ingredients to make this chutney.

Lady finger(Okra) - 150 gm(big ones, you can see in the photo, I took 12)
Oil -1 tbsp
Green chilly - 6 to 8(depends on the chilly, I took more because I wanted it spicy)
Fresh Coriander - 1 small bunch
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Crystal Salt to taste(optional, you can use the normal table salt)
Garlic - 1 small bulb(6-8 cloves)
Lime juice -1 tsp+ 1 tsp

Method :
  • Wash and dry wipe the lady fingers and keep it aside.
  • When dry, cut into round pieces.
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai.
  • Fry the cut lady finger pieces for some time.
  • Add 1 tsp of lime juice to remove the stickiness.
  • Add Green chilly and peeled garlic.
  • Fry all till brown.
  • Let it be cool.
  • Separate the chilly and garlic.
  • Take the cleaned fresh coriander, cumin seeds, chilly and garlic in a mixi.
  • Grind into a coarse paste.
  • Add the fried lady finger and just turn the mixi for few seconds. 
  • Transfer into a bowl, add a tsp of lime juice. Adjust the seasoning. 

Enjoy it with chapati, hot rice and ghee or even a curd rice.

My husband brought the Paapadis in the evening when I made this chutney. My elder daughter and him both enjoyed the Paapadis with this spiciest chutney.
