Sometime last year, we were having a girls’ night out at my friend N’s house. I happened to taste this incredibly delicious Kiwi and Lime Chutney at her place, which she had picked up during her travels to Himachal Pradesh. That chutney was just the perfect blend of sweet, sour and hot and although it has been a long time since then, the flavours have stayed with me.
I got some Kiwi fruits yesterday, just to have as a snack, but it turned out a little too sour. I was reminded of that Chutney, and I combined the sour Kiwi with a really ripe and sweet pineapple to make my own sweet and sour Chutney.
2 Kiwi fruits, peeled and chopped;
½ Pineapple, peeled and diced;
½ tsp cumin seeds, coarsely crushed;
½ tsp black sesame seeds, lightly roasted;
Red chilly Powder, to taste;
Jaggery or sugar, just enough to balance the sourness (I used about 2tsp crushed Jaggery);
Salt, to taste;
Oil, a few drops.
