Amte kai chutney! Have you tasted ambarella? It looks like a small raw mango, and tastes amazing! The perfect sourness for a lip smacking chutney.
Known by many names like Amte kai in Kannada, Ambade in Tulu, Ambado in Konkani, Ambarella or Hog Plum in English, this fruit is very popular in Asian, American and African countries. In India, it is used in chutney, pickles, soups and curry. Rich source of dietary fibre and Vitamin B complex!
Chutneys today are popularly garnished with an oil tadka. This is unnecessary and does not add any health benefit to the chutney. Whole nuts are the best sources of oil.
Amte kai chutney is a traditional dip prepared with ambarella with selected spices. Also check out our Amte Kai Coconut Chutney!
