Plum Chutney

Aachar, paapad and chutney have special significance in Indian food as accompaniments. All of us Indians have some kind of these accompaniments with our meal. Talking about chutneys, many of them are fairly regular like coriander and mint chutney in the north and coconut chutney in the south. Chutney tastes good when there is a good balance of sweet, savory and spicy.

As kids, we used to have a kitchen garden in our backyard and used to grow many different kind of fruits and vegetables. In the summer season, we used to have different kind of fruits like phalsa, jamun and plums. However, my biggest concern was that these only come for a very few weeks and then get over, even as you long to have more of these. Since the last few years, I make and preserve this wonderful plum chtuney so I can enjoy the taste of fruits for longer than these few weeks. This chutney has a nice balance for good taste and goes well as a side with most Indian food. Use this recipe to make most of this summer season and enjoy the lovely taste of plums with your everyday meal.
