Pickles and chutneys make our meal complete. We have varieties of them in the Indian Cuisine and there is no end to new innovations. I made this tangy spinach and onion chutney. Tastes really good.

Spinach ....       1 cup (chopped)
Coriander leaves ..   1/2 cup
Onion .............. 1 medium ( sliced)
Garlic .......... 1 tbsp (crushed)
Green chillies .. 2-3 ( as per your taste)
Cumin seeds .... 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder .. 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida ............. a pinch
Tamarind .............. 1 small piece (marble sized)
Salt .................. to taste
Oil .................3-4 tbsps

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds. Don't let them become too brown.
2. Add the asafoetida, onion and garlic. Saute for a minute or two.
3. Now tip in the spinach, coriander leaves and green chillies.
4. Add the salt,turmeric powder and  tamarind piece ( remove the seeds if any)
5. Mix and simmer for a while, stirring it occasionally.
6. Let it cool. Grind it in a mixer.

It stays good for a longer time if you add more oil to it.

Pin for later
