Obviously with tender methi stems chutney, you have to make sure they are clean, washed and really tender and not bitter. And there you have an easy side dish for idli/dosa. And there you have it, a nice and flavourful chutney! ... “Methi Stems Chutney | Menthe Detina Chutney | Chutney Recipes”

Tomato chutney and gojju are made in many ways in the Indian cuisine. I tried the Bengali version of making tamatar chatni/chutney and I absolutely love the fresh flavours of the subtle spices added in the form of panch phoran. The special ingredient though has to be raisins/kismish which give an edge of sweetness and the way they pop in your mouth adds to the texture of the chatni. Enjoy this chatni with Bengali style khichuri – Bhog er Khichuri. ... “Tamatar Chatni | Bengali Style Tomato Chutney”
