Grapes Chutney/Dip

Hello Friends,

Recently I have new found love of this ingredient from my backyard. You may have seen my post regarding Indian pickle using raw grapes from my grapevine. The vine was full of grapes which I wanted to use before they ripe. So I thought why not make chutney/dip

Chutney is a condiment served with all the meals and with many dishes. It is like a dip. I make many different varieties of chutney, this one is made of mainly raw grapes and coriander leaves. Grapes adds lovely tang to this chutney. I have also added sugar to balance out the tartness from grapes, it is perfect sweet and sour dip. This chutney requires only few ingredients. I did not add garlic or lemon juice because I wanted to preserve the grapes taste and colour. I have added roasted chana dal to make it thick but you can replace it with peanuts or completely avoid it. How hot you want it is completely up to you.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 0 minutes

Ingredients:

Chopped coriander leaves with stems – 2 cups
Raw grapes – 1 cup
Chopped green/red chili – 2
Roasted chana dal – 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
1/2 tsp sugar
Salt to taste

Procedure

1. In a blender/mixer, add all ingredients with slight water and make smooth paste. If you wish, you can also add olive oil.IMG_8437

2. Chutney is now ready.  Store in glass bottle and put in the fridge immediately so it doesn’t change the colour. You can store it for 1-2 months in a deep freezer. Use the small container or baby food bottles to store, and remove one bottle at a time to use.

There are endless opportunity how you can serve this chutney/dip. Spread on toasted bread or bagel, as a dip with any appetizer or as a condiment on hot dogs, burger or panini, choice is yours!
