Aamchur - Posto'r Chutney

This is the simplest of all chutneys that I have eaten so far. Its a perfect sweet and sour treat. I like this chutney with hot rice and plain daal.

Ingredients :

1. Posto (khus khus / poppy seed)- 5 large tbs
2. Aamchur (dry)- 8 to 10
3. Sugar- 5 tsp
4. Oil- 1 tsp
5. Jeera (cumin seeds)- 1/4 tsp
6. Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
7. Salt to taste

Procedure :

Soak the posto in water for half an hour and then drain the water from it. Grind the posto in mixer with little quantity of water. Now heat oil in a pan and add jeera to it. When the jeera start spluttering , add the aamchurs. Now add the posto , turmeric , salt and mix well. Add the sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Cover the pan and let it cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Check the sweetness level of the chutney and adjust it if needed. Remove it from the flame and serve it with hot rice.
Note : the aamchurs are already salty , hence , use a little amount of salt for this.


Sending this to the event called Roti pachadi / chutney.
