Imli ki chutney or chatkara

maxresdefault

Very mouth watering imli ki chutney with only 5 ingredients. Whole life I have seen my mom and my aunts putting corn-flour for making it thick  and soon the chutney gets rotten or smelly. This is the most consumed chutney in whole Ramadan and will gives you a proud feeling Inshallah.

Imli                                         1 packet

Jaggery (ghur)                        1 large

Cumin (Zeera)                     ½ t.sp

Red chilli powder              ½ t.sp

Salt                                      ½ t.sp

Dry mint                             ½ t.sp (optional)

Boil all the ingredients together with covered water.

Boil it till chutney gets thick remove it cold on room temperature.

After it cools down you will see it become more thick.

Put the chutney in a covered container and put it in a fridge.

Tip:

Don’t separate the seeds, as seeds help it stay fresh and thicken.

You can use red chili flakes instead of red chili powder.
