Raw Turmeric & Mango Ginger Chutney | Raw turmeric Chutney | Easy home remedies

Medicines needn't be always hard to make or swallow right ?  We all know turmeric is an excellent antisceptic, but obviously we cant swallow raw turmeric powder, although indian cuisine uses turmeric powder extensively. But its in small quantities, so making this chutney once in a while (may be fortnightly) would increase the digestive power and also boost the anti bacterial power within the body. 

Today's post is a quick to make chutney (and we LOVE chutneys at home :-)) with raw turmeric and ginger. Made with seasonally available raw and fresh turmeric and mango ginger (Maa Inji / Maanga Inji) , this chutney is sure to perk up your breakfast  to a new height. Although there's no substitute for both these fresh ingredients, do use normal ginger although the taste would vary vastly. We use the same combination for a lipsmacking pickle too

Sending this to Day 2 of BM #45 under Home Remedies.
