Amchur Chutney

I usually find a bottle of ‘Imli ki Chutney’ in my refrigerator. Unfortunately, I emptied that bottle sometime back n realized when I planned to make ‘Ragdewali Panipuri’ :( I didn’t have tamarind in stock n it was tough to manage getting it in-time from the store. So what do you do when you’re troubled this way??!!!

When I was confused about a tangy chutney, without which hubby would not enjoy bhel/chaat/panipuri… My packet of Amchur Powder smiled @ me saying ‘I’m always there for you’ :) I immediately took it and made this instant ‘Amchur Chutney’ as an alternate to tamarind one. And it turned out to be so tangy n tasty :)

  • You can also use black pepper powder instead of red chilly powder here.
  • To make it sweeter, add jaggery adjusting to your taste.
