Kaddu Chutney (Pumpkin Chutney/Condiment/Seasoning)

kaddu chutney, bengal gram chutney
It was kaddu or pumpkin day in my kitchen today. I tried kaddu raita, kaddu buttermilk, and kaddu chutney and savored all of these with dosa! Yum platter it was!

The decision to make kaddu or pumpkin chutney came all of a sudden. It's very simple to prepare this tasty, tangy, and healthy chutney.
Let's see what all I have included here!












Ingredients
kaddu
1/2 tsp- chana dal
1/2 tsp - urad dal
1/4 tsp- mustard seeds
1/2 tsp- oil
1 small piece of tamarind (I used sweet tamarind chutney) If you are using tamarind, then keep it for boiling along with little sugar for 8-10 mins
Tomato -1 (if you do not want to use tamarind - I used imli instead of tomato)
Salt, black salt
Green chilly
4-5 mint leaves

Procedure
kaddu chutney pumpkin chutney


  1. Cut pumpkin into small pieces and boil with little salt and turmeric for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Let them cool down.
  3. Take oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds,chana dal and urad dal. Let them splutter on low flame.
  4. Add green chilly. Mix and switch off the flame. However, if you are using tomato instead of tamarind, cut tomato into small pieces and add to the tempering. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes and its juices blend with the tempered ingredients. Turn off the flame and let them cool.
  5. Pour the tempering over the pumpkin pieces.
  6. Add this mixture into the grinder along with tamarind paste and 2-3 mint leaves. 
  7. Add little sugar and black salt.
  8. Run the processor for 2-3 minutes or until you get paste.
  9. Your tasty, tangy pumpkin chutney is ready!
  10. Garnish with coriander or mint leaves. Enjo!

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? You might be wondering whether there is something like eggless baking without baking powder or soda. Well, this was exactly what I had been thinking until I tried this eggless cake without baking powder today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me. If baking without baking powder interests you, then you will be a permanent visitor here, for we think, live, and eat healthy and primarily focus on baking without baking powder or soda.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.
