The hog plum is baaaaack.
If you are following me on this blog since few months then you must have seen the wonderfulness of typical hog plum in the form of hog plum gojju. Today it’s back. These hog plums are fresh, homely grown and flew along with us from India to UAE.
Hog plum whose looks are similar to tender mangoes has a big, fibrous seed that is covered with thin pulp and thin skin. It is known as “ambate kayi” in kannada and used in lots of incredible recipes.
All good food lovers of the world, kindly note this : hog plum chutney can be a best substitute for regular rice side dish. I mean when you come back home and are Hungry with capital H, you have no time to cook an elaborate side dish then this hog plum chutney can better accompany the rice topped with a dollop of ghee or oil.
When hog plums are in season, try this simple hog plum chutney and stock in fridge that can last more than a fortnight. It comes as a very handy accompaniment. The tangy hog plums with the spice kick of green chillies, seasoned in enough oil and curry leaves give a protective layer plus flavor. What an easy food magic 🙂
