Ginger Chutney

Ginger is found to have both culinary and medicinal uses..It is mainly used as a spice in cooking and it is said to stimulate gastric juices and provide warming and soothing effects for colds and coughs..Ginger is an excellent natural remedy for nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness and general stomach upset..I generally add a little ginger to my tea everyday...I came upon this ginger chutney in m friend Uma's blog and tried it..I made it with a little variations and we liked it a lot..We had it with adai dosai and it really complemented it..Here goes the recipe..


Ginger (chopped) - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small sized
Bengal gram - 2 teaspoons
Urad dhall - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Tamarind extract - 1 teaspoon
Red chillies - 3
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 teaspoons


Wash and peel the ginger and chop it finely..Also chop the onions..
Heat the oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds,urad dhall and bengal gram..Once they start spluttering add the chopped ginger and onions and fry for about 3 minutes until the onions turn translucent and the ginger starts changing its colour..Allow them to cool completely..
Blend them together along with salt,sugar,turmeric powder and tamarind extract..
Serve with idlies, dosas or rice..
