Ginger Chutney

After marriage i started cooking though not a good cook but ok,recently my husband got bored of cocunut mixed chutney so i wanted to try this ginger chutney since Ginger is considered to be having some medicinal content in it.
In India, ginger is applied as a paste to the temples to relieve headache and consumed when suffering from the common cold, people use ginger for making tea, in food etc.
So after some research i got this recipe which is very simple and the taste came out really good and my husband relished it with dosa.

The measurement what i took gave me 1 cup of chutney



Ingredients:

* ·Tamarind – Big Gooseberry Sized
* ·Ginger – 10gms
* ·Red Chillies – 11
* ·Fenugreek Seeds – 1/2tsp
* ·Mustard Seeds – 1tsp
* ·Black Gram – 2tsps
* ·Jaggery – 40gms
* ·Salt to Taste
* ·Turmeric Powder – 1/4tsp
* ·Asafoetida – 1/8tsp
* ·Curry Leaves – Handful
* ·Oil – 12tsps

Preparations:

Take tamarind in a microwave safe bowl and add some water. Soak for few minutes and microwave on high power for 30 seconds. Keep the cooked tamarind aside for cooling. Wash and clean the ginger and dry it completely. Chop the ginger to small pieces and keep it aside. Break the red chillies into small pieces.

Method:

Heat a pan and add oil to it. When oil is hot add fenugreek seeds and black gram. Fry till the seeds start changing color. Take a bowl and place a wire mesh above the bowl. When the seeds start changing color add mustard seeds and allow them to crackle. Now add asafoetida and red chilli pieces. Fry all the seasonings well. Take care of the Red chilli, it soon gets brunt if we are not alert. Finally add the curry leaves and fry till dry. Transfer this seasoning to the bowl over which the wire mesh is placed. All the oil will be collected in the bowl. Grind the seasonings in a mixer grinder along with ginger pieces, turmeric powder, salt, jaggery and tamarind along with the water. Grind to a paste adding water if required. Finally add the oil and mix well. Transfer the chutney to a serving bowl.
And serve it with any kind of dosa you like.
