Chutneys, Sizzling Tastebuds

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

needn’t be always hard to make or swallow right ?  We all know turmeric is

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
