Almond Raisin Chutney for idlis,dosas,pongal etc..
Does the word Chutney remind you of the usual Coconut chutney or tomato chutney?? Time to change!! I had already posted a recipe of Apple Chutney. Now is the turn to make some nutty chutney – No not coconut but almonds…Got the basic idea from my co-sister. Almond is to be used in place of coconut and she said it tastes very similar to coconut chutney but much much healthier. I really wanted to try it out and finally today was the day 🙂 I wanted a different taste, so added some raisins and tamarind to make it sweet and sour. Tasty indeed and made in a jiffy!! No shredding of coconuts or no health concerns involved. This is a no-cook healthy chutney and is a perfect choice of chutney for idli, dosa or any other tiffin 🙂
