What Is a Chutney?
A chutney is a type of condiment or dip from the cuisines of the Indian subcontinent. They can be either sweet or savoury. Typically, they are prepared with herbs like cilantro and mint, dried fruits, fresh fruits or vegetables with a varying mix of spices and other herbs. Sugar, salt, yoghurt, vinegar, and lemon/lime may also be used in their preparation.
How Are Chutneys Served?
