Strawberry Chutney is Red

Written By Srimathi Mani on Friday, August 29, 2008 | 11:39 AM


The color of strawberry is very beautiful. It has this tone of red that is very fun and pleasing to the eye. With the intention to eat fresh produce as much as possible, I decided to use up the bag of frozen strawberries. Had no specific recipe in my mind, I decided to allow my creative juices to flow in preparing something interesting and fast. It was a very relaxing and exciting experience for me to start cooking without a plan. Well, after I tossed the strawberries in the pan, I worked like the rat in Ratatouille. The chutney was perfect for me, a little sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Great with stuffed roti's, bread toppings. Reminded me of something I tasted at farmers markets. My entry to WYF Color in Food: Mine is Red.

Ingredients:

Strawberries - 15 ( I used frozen , I am sure fresh would be fine too)

  5. Thank you all for these nice words. Alka, what you give out you get in 100 folds they say.

    Regarding the strawberry, I think to make chutney its important not to use very sour or tart ones coz then the amount of sugar, salt and spice needs to be increased to achieve the perfect taste.
