Tangy Radish Chutney: No Heating, No Fuss Recipe


tangy radish chutney
Radish chutney? No,I am not kidding. In fact, this term would have certainly sprung a surprise on me a couple of years back when cooking was nowhere in my dreams. Now that I have begun cooking, it isn't a surprise for me.

But the credit for this yummy, tangy radish chutney goes to Vins Raj. I love her food posts that are inspired by her south Indian origin, for I love food from the south. It's yummy in every way.

Slight modification to the original recipe has given my mooli chutney a new color!

Radish is one root vegetable that does not have a huge fan following. But I love mooli in all its forms - from salad to soup, from curry to stir fry, from sambar to chutney.

You will find a number of radish recipe experiments in this website alone. I have already tried mooli sambar, inspired by Chinnis Corner. The sambar came out yummy. I won;t be wrong to say that it was one of the tastiest sambar types I have ever had.

Then I have tried mooli bhajja - a kind of stir fry. Please do give this recipe a try once. Fussy eaters at home would turn mooli lovers. Yes, I can boast this claim!

Next comes the turn of another mooli stir fry, which was blended with carrot to produce a lip-smacking bhajja that tasted divine in every form.

Now is the turn of mooli chutney or radish chutney. You have got to try this radish recipe once to prove to the world that mooli tastes yummy!

With no heating, no tempering required, this does make a must-try radish chutney. Are you going to give it a try?

Yes, these are a little chewy almond butter cookies the first day, with the rustic taste of roasted almonds that make up almond butter. But they should become crunchy the next day.

While almond butter oozes oil, flax meal egg makes a handy addition to the cookie recipe with oatmeal.

  5. Give a few churns.

  7. Worry not if the dough is loose. But make sure it should not be too loose. If it still feels loose, add 1-2 tsp of extra oats powder.
  8. Make a log and cover with a cling  film or aluminum foil.
  9. Refrigerate for 30 mts.
  10. Preheat the oven (mw convection) at 180 degree for 10 mts.

  12. Cut into different shapes of cookie and bake for 14 mts at 180 degrees. The cookies are chewy initially and should become crunchy the next day.
  13. Let the butter almond thin cookies remain in the oven until they cool down.
  14. Take the homemade almond butter cookies out on a cooling rack.
