Tried and tasted by Nivedita
My very last minute last entry to Jagruti's ongoing event.
Raw tamarind! Do any one have the sweet memories of these tangy and mouthwatering green raw tamarind?
I am sure! You have at least one memory with this fruit!
I have plenty of memories. Among them is the one, where we used to wait for the Tamarind tree owners to sleep in the afternoon so that it will be easy for us to throw the stones to the trees and take the tamarind falling on the ground! If some one wakes up we used to run as if there is dog chasing us. Then we used to have it with rock stone.
Now coming to the recipe,
This is actually known as Tokku here. Very tasty chutney to eat with rice.
This chutney or tokku is prepared when tamarind is still green or raw. You can prepare it and store for a year.
Very easy to make it. Come lets see the ingredients :
Raw tamarind : 15 to 20
Green chilly - 10
Salt to taste
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Wash the tamarind properly. Dry them fully. Wipe the tamarind pieces with cloth to remove the water. Cut in to pieces.
Add green chilly, salt, methi seeds and hing. Put in a mixer or blender to get the coarse texture. Adjust the seasoning.
Chutney is ready to eat or store.
This will make almost 150 gm of chutney.
