chutney recipes – 30 easy chutney recipes | indian chutney recipes


collection of easy chutney recipes – including popular chutney varieties like coconut chutney, mint chutney, coriander chutney, green chutney and sweet chutney for chaat.

chutney recipes originated in the indian sub continent. indians have taken food very seriously as a science and experimented with the spices, herbs, vegetables, fruits to come out with best recipes from them. like indian architecture, music, dance etc… indian food is also very rich, vast as well as colorful.

chutney plays a very multiple role in indian cuisine despite the fact that it can be easily tucked away in any corner of the plate. its an important ingredient for serving idli, dosa, vada, uttapam, sandwiches, most chaat items samosa, pakora, tikkis/patties, dabeli, sev puri, bhel puri, ragda patties and so on. in short, indian street food is powered by chutneys.

  • chutney acts as an appetizer and also some are good for digestion.
  • they adds their own flavor and many recipes like idli, dosa or chaat items like samosa, tikki cannot be enjoyed totally without an accompanying chutney. if you serve idli or samosa without a chutney to an indian food lover then it will be an incomplete meal for him. such is the importance of chutney.
  • sweet chutney can be applied to biscuits, crackers and sandwich. basically the sweet chutney is more used in europe where the european traders took the chutney recipes from india in the 17th century. european style of making chutney has a thick consistency and almost like a jam or jelly. whereas indian chutney recipes are not so thick and are semi-liquid in type.

chutney can be made with fruits, vegetable, herb or spices. usually in most chutney recipes, one ingredient predominate the taste and thats how the chutney is named. most of the famous chutney recipes are made using coconut, mint, coriander, cilantro, garlic, ginger, mango, tamarind, red chili, green chili, lime, peanut, cumin, fenugreek, asafoetida and tomato.

chutney stays well for few days, if stored in refrigerator. but always better to consume it fresh.

    helo, am from South and we have many vegetables for chutnies. We use brinjal, red pumpkin, ridge gourd, cabbage, carrot, beetroot , chowchow, for chutny. It’s my humble suggestion that along with your chutnies you may add these too, or have I missed seeing yours if you had already given. I liked kata meet a chutny,the tangy sweet one . Seem to be at your site very much at this age!!!! Don’t mind a long as people around enjoy and I can cater them with non familiar items. God bless u. DK

      i know about the various chutneys dk ji. just that i have not yet made them. but as you suggest, i will try to add them. sweet chutney i make in bulk and keep in the fridge. does not get spoiled and goes very well with chaat snacks. thanks again dk ji.

      • DK says

        Dasanna, I fully agree with you. The chutnies made with vegetables will just for the time being. It was only a suggestion. I have saved your green chutney, date chutney and saunth one too. God bless you. DK
