Pumpkin chutney/Dip

Spicy pumpkin chutney is a delicious condiment and very easy to make. Spicy pumpkin chutney is a delightful mix of sweet and sour and goes very well with cheese, meats and many people add it to soups and sauces to give them a more interesting flavour.

Sultanas can also be added for additional flavor & this can be stored for a week in a air tight container. Though, I make this chutney occasionally, I serve this as a dip for pappad during snack time. Try this!! it taste different:)

Ingredients :

  1. 1 cup Pumpkin (peeled & diced)
  2. 1 small apple (peeled & diced)
  3. 1 medium sized onion
  4. 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  5. 1 large clove garlic, mashed
  6. 1 tsp Coriander Leaves (chopped)
  7. 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  8. 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  9. 1 tsp Red Chili Powder
  10. 1 tsp mustard seeds
  11. 1 tsp Sugar
  12. Salt to taste
  13. 1 tbsp Oil
  14. 1 tsp nutmeg pwd
Directions :
  • Put pumpkin and apple pieces in a pan. Add enough water to cover the contents. Also add turmeric powder and lemon juice to it and cook until both get soft.
  • Turn off the flame and roughly mash the pieces with a potato masher. Do not make pasty, allow small pieces to remain.
  • Heat oil in the pan, add mustard seeds followed by the onion, ginger & garlic.
  • Now add sugar and resume cooking till sugar gets dissolved.
  • Once excess moisture evaporates, add chili, mashed pumpkin, salt and mix well.
  • Add nutmeg powder & turn off the flame. Let the chutney cool and then add chopped coriander to it.

Pumpkin Chutney is ready to serve.
