Red Chilly Chutney

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Are you ready to take this challenge. How much spicy food your tongue can take!! Want to check it? Then try this chutney! A spicy chutney which will bring tears in your eyes and you will start dancing. Want to bet?
Then get ready to make this chutney.
North Karnataka people love to have this chutney, but I have added ginger to the regular chutney to bring extra taste and I love Ginger!!!

Ingredients :
Fresh Red chilly - 20(you get these only in this rainy season)
Ginger - 2" thick piece
Oil - 1 tsp
Cumin seed - 2 tsp
Hing - a pinch or if using rock hing, use just a mustard size.
Jaggery - 1/4 cup, powdered
Tamarind - 1 lime size or Tamarind paste - 2 tbsp 
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
For tempering :
Oil -1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Wash and pat dry the red chilly. Cut into small pieces. 
Wash, peel and grate or cut the ginger into small pieces.
Fry the red chilly and ginger in 1 tsp oil for 2 minutes. Do not allow the chilly to get burnt. 
Add all the other ingredients. 
Put in a blender and grind into a fine paste.
Adjust the seasoning.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Add mustard seeds when hot, wait till they splutter.
Add it to the ready chutney.
Decide with what you will have this one?
I loved it with chapati and Dosa. I had it just like that also!

Sending it to 

Keep Smiling,

Ginger Pickle

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Simple but healthy, tasty and instant pickle. My daughter and me will eat it like sabji than pickle. We eat it with paratha, chapati, rice, upma and the list goes on. Some times just like that!!!

Here are the ingredients,
Ginger - 1/4 kilo
Lime juice - of 4 to 6 medium
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 3 to 4 tbsp
Haldi - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp, heat the oil and let it be cool
Soak the ginger in salted water for half an hour. Clean the skin and cut into thin long pieces.
Add in a glass jar with all other ingredients. Check the taste. Keep for an hour for immediate use. Try to preserve in the fridge as it may spoil if kept outside.
Keep smiling,
