ALMOND/BADAM CHUTNEY / BADAMI CHUTNEY

Posted in : CHUTNEY on by : Divya Suresh

Long back I got to know about this recipe from my friend and I was astonished to see chutney using only Almonds…..  (I tried it with using small quantity of fresh coconut also). It tastes more or less like coconut chutney and can be used as the accompaniment with almost everything. Can be made once in a while and goes very well with Akki rotti ( rice roti). Today I prepared it with cucumber akki rotti and it was awesome. So sharing the recipe here.

 

 

        Ingredients : 

        For chutney :

  • Almonds – 1 cup ( if you want to use fresh coconut, then put 3/4 cup of almond and 1/4 cup coconut )
  • Green chilli – 2 to 4  or according to taste
  • Ginger – 1/2 an inch piece
  • Salt to taste

        For tempering :

  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Split black lentils / Urad dal – 1 tsp ( heaped )
  • Curry leaves – few

 

        PROCEDURE :

  • Soak the Almonds in enough water for 10 to 15 minutes ( Later I used it for grinding the chutney)
  • Then grind together almonds, chillies, ginger and salt adding water to the desired consistency
  • Prepare tempering and pour it over the chutney and serve
