Raw tamarind chutney was in my list for a longer period and was waiting for the raw tamarind in the market.  When my co-sister went to market, she bought the same for me. I was happy that I got this as it is very difficult for me to get the same where I live.

This chutney I tasted when I was in the school and after leaving my native place at the age of 18, I never got the opportunity to prepare this chutney.

I was so thrilled when I saw the raw tamarind and made the chutney which I am sharing with you.  We can make the chutney in different ways, but the one which I made yesterday is shared with you now.

Uppu mangai,salted mango or azhugu mangai means raw tender mangoes are preserved in salt water.  When the mango becomes very soft and changed its colour to a light yellowish brown colour and able to smash it with hands, at that time it is removed from the Bharani (jar).  This is the old practice my mother used to follow which I am also following. 

Arachukalakki is a side dish served with molagootal, dal rice etc.  It means with little coconut and green chilli, this uppu mangai or raw mango or yam etc. are used to grind to a fine paste or coarse paste,in case of raw mango.


To be frank with you, I am tracing  all the old  grandma recipes forgotten for the past 40 years of my life in Mumbai.  Whenever iIsee some age  old recipes,  (old is gold) I never miss the chance of tasting it, wherever it may be.

Today when I made mix sprouts dosa (you can make adai also), I was wondering what to make as accompaniment.  Since we are strictly on diet, consuming coconut is restricted hence I cannot make coconut chutney. 

I saw the bottle of mangoes lying in front of me, I said, why not make this today.  Here i am sharing with you this age old recipe with you so that you will also enjoy the same.

 We bought a box full of Cherrys as my childlren love them to eat.  When I made bun dosa, what to make as accompaniment for this as I do not want my husband to eat molagai podi with lots of oil in it.  So decided to make the chutney out of the cherries.   

With cherries alone, I felt, it will not be tasty much as I was not willing to add coconut to it.  So I decided to added tomato with it and boiled it and tempered with mustard seed and curry leaves. 

I  am not sure about the nutritional value after cooking the cherries but enjoyed the same with the dosa.  As it was worth posting, here the easy and simple recipe.

Ginger has got many medicinal values. it is good for digestion, cold, nausea etc.   this simple ginger chutney goes along with any mild curry like plain dal, molagootal etc.  it goes along with dosa, idli, upma also.

I tasted  it when I visited my cousin's house at Calicut.  She had made this chutney along with molagootal.

Let us have a look at the simple inji curry which can be prepared within 5 minutes if you have the ingredients in your fridge.

Tomato onion chutney is a good accompaniment along with dosa, idli, uttappa etc.  It can be had with rice too.  this is a diet friendly dish.

If you do not have coconut at home or if you want a diet friendly chutney, you can opt for this.  This can be made instantly as tomatoes and onions are always available at home.
