Awala chutney recipe -nellikayi chutney recipe -how to make gooseberry chutney - chutney recipe

Awala or nellikayi chutney recipe - Today I am going to share a very healthy awala chutney recipe, which I make frequently during gooseberry season. This chutney is  not very tasty, but very healthy and  nutritious. I like it to have as a side dish with steamed rice and curry, when other tempting side dishes are also there. So small quantity of this chutney can be consumed along with other dishes.

Awala or nellikayi chutney recipe

7-8 awala / gooseberry / nellikayi
1 green chilly, chopped
2 red chillies
1/2 lemon sized tamarind
1/4 cup grated fresh coconut
1/4 tsp asafoetida / hing
1/2 tsp oil
Salt to taste

  • Wash The awalas thoroughly. Chop them and separate the seeds.  Heat some water in a deep vessel . 
  • Add the chopped  awala, green chilly, red chilly, tamarind and coconut to it. Cook covered on low flame until awalas are soft. 
  • Once the awala cooked well and become soft, switch off the flame and allow it to cool. When it cools, grind to a smooth paste. 
  • Make an asafoetida tadka and pour it on the chutney.  Mix to combine well.
