As everybody knows vegetables plays an important role in preparing dishes. They are used in our kitchen in various forms. They are the source of vitamins, minerals, salts, amino acids, fibre etc., They are used in sambar, pulav, bisibelebath, curries, palya, salads etc., All vegetables have typical flavour and taste. Some vegetables are not liked due to their smell and taste. But today’s dish is an exception to it.
Today I am showing you a yummy and nutritious chutney using various vegetables. This is very good idea to make children consume vegetables.
I have used carrot, radish, cabbage, capsicum., You can add various vegetables as per your choice.
Radish, carrot, cabbage, capsicum 2 cups
Green Chillies 4-5
Red chillies 3-4
Ginger ½ inch
Tamarind ½ lemon size
Grated coconut ½ cup
Fried gram 1 tbsp
Curry leaves 4-5 strands
Coriander leaves one fistful
Mustard seeds ¼ tsp
Oil 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Take a pan put ½ tsp oil and fry all grated vegetables for 4-5 mins.
You can see the water content is dried. Allow to cool.
Take a mixie jar put fried vegetables, ginger, tamarind, grated coconut, green chillies, curry leaves, coriander leaves, salt and grind it.
When chutney is coarsely ground add fried gram and run for 2-3 mins to make chutney.
In the same pan put ½ tsp oil and when it is hot add mustard seeds to splutter.
Mix this to chutney and serve.
You can have Vegetable Chutney with chapatti, dosa, jowar roti, hot rice etc.,
Vegetables can be added as per your choice. If you add beetroot chutney will come out little reddish. This chutney can be stored for a day in refrigerator. Better to prepare fresh always. Chillies can be added more, if you want spicy chutney.
