Can you imagine the combined taste of green tamarind and greenchilli? This is it! This chutney is incredible! It will tingle your taste buds and make your mouths water. I tried it with coconut rice and it was such an amazing combination. It went so well with it. I would just eat a whole bowl of coconut rice with this incredible chutney. I just could not resist it and ended up licking the whole bowl clean.
I haven’t made a chutney of this green tamarind ever before but of course have enjoyed it with salt and red chilli powder in my school days in India. I love eating sour and tangy foods. Be it green mango, lime or lemon, green or dried tamarind I used to enjoy eating them with salt and red chilli powder very much. So I had to experiment it this time. I kept adding the green chillies one by one adjusting the salt till it reached the bliss point. It was just sensational and so delightful!
1 cup green tamarind
5- 6 green chillies
4 curry leaves
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
1. Rinse the green tamarind and green chillies in running water and grind them together with salt in a wet grinder to a slightly coarse and not very fine texture.
2. Remove and put it in a serving bowl. Heat the ghee and splutter the mustard seeds, add the curry leaves and sizzle them till they are crisp then immediately pour the tempering on the chutney. Enjoy with coconut rice or any snacks or fritters.
