Chutney rules my world of breakfast which is some kind of crepe or dumpling most of the time. Chutney is a dipping sauce based on wide range of recipes and preparation methods. It can range from a wet to dry or coarse to fine and can be combined with wide variety of foods or used for dipping.
I love playing with chutney recipe and never like hooking on to a monotonous one. It can be made more exciting accompaniment with little change in spices and vegetables used for making the same.
Right now slurping a big bowl of green palak soup, I am posting this yummy bottle gourd chutney which is my recent addition to chutney series. Do you remember bottle gourd nippattu posted few days ago? A small portion of bottle gourd was still staring at me from the pantry saying USE ME…Hence this bottle gourd chutney got it’s birth.
Bottle gourd chutney gets the ‘Easiest ever’ badge as it can be made in just 15 minutes of time. Peeling and cubing the bottle gourd in to big chunks took me around 5 minutes while cooking them in to tender soft took 5 to 6 minutes. Roasting and grinding everything together took rest of the time.
Let me tell you the fact…I spent good portion of my afternoon in writing this post than preparing bottle gourd chutney…I mean it..
You guys…already observed?? Yes..I did not beautify the chutney with seasoning, I liked to present it plain on a black background. How is the look?
Anyways move on to the recipe.
