KATHIYAWADI LEHSUN CHUTNEY /GARLIC CHUTNEY

Hello!!

Today I am sharing a delicious chutney from Kathiyawadi region of Gujarat. A fiery red lehsun / garlic chutney. This is not for faint hearts . A great condiment for rotis, Pakodas,Bhajiya,vada pav, Dabeli etc. I am planning to use it in my curries too.

Kathiawar is a dry arid region . They use a lot of legumes, onion and garlic in their cooking.They use Bajra and Potatoes as green vegetables are unavailable for most parts of the year.They use turmeric and chillies to enhance the taste.People use seasonal produce in their cooking.

This month as a part of our recipe swap challenge I was paired with Archana who has some wonderful collection of variety of dishes from Goan and Maharastrian Cuisine . I have bookmarked some of her sauce recipes to try. They can me made with easily available ingredients.Do check out her space https://themadscientistskitchen.com/ .

MANGO AND CILANTRO DRESSING

IMG_1188aIMG_1192a

 

Hello !!!!

Summers are in full swing and the heat is unbearable. I am always thinking of quick and healthy recipes that can help me to be out from my kitchen as soon as possible. Apart from the heat, work at office is also hectic and drains me end of the day as i have been reaching home very late everyday. For dinner my family prefers to have a healthy salad that is filling too. My boys have rice or Chapati with any veggies as well. You can make the salad more appetizing by adding home made dips or dressing. Home made dips and dressing are always the best.

Our 93rd #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme is  #Summerfruit. My Contribution for this wonderful theme is this versatile Mango and Cilantro dressing that is so finger licking good. I enjoyed this dressing with some papadums.

1 Ripe Mango peeled and cubed

1/4 Unripe Mango peeled and cubed

1/2 Cup fresh Cilantro leaves
