Chutnies are a basic part of Indian cuisine and very few meals are complete without it! They add flavor and zest to any meal and turn it from ordinary to wow. There are various types of chutney from spicy to tangy to sweet. They come in wet or dry form and use different types of fruit and vegetables plus spices.
Before the spread of modern-day electric blenders, women used stones to mash their chutney and according to our Indian guard, the taste was unbeatable. I normally serve the yogurt chutney with the Biryani recipe I posted on dish-away.

Rania Al Shurafa'a: A mom of four adorable kids I feel that my kitchen is my haven where I forget myself in the heat of preparing different kinds of dishes. I often ask women from different nationalities for recipes of authentic dishes from their countries. My nose is programmed to sniff the smell of delicious food and on more than one occasion I have knocked the doors of my neighbors to ask them about the aromatic food they are cooking. My husband jokes that my nose will kill you one day! I use freshly grounded spices, so if you are preparing my dishes with packed spices, increase the portions a bit. Hope you will give my recipes a try.
