Chutneys originated in India and have since spread globally and been adopted by various countries. Chutney is derived from the Hindi word chatni which means to lick or eat with appetite.

Chutneys are used as an accompaniment to dishes.  They enhance and add depth to many dishes and are essential component of many Indian dishes. They are all fairly easy and quick to make.

Chutneys are served with many Indian dishes. For example, cilantro chutney is often seen served with samosas, dhoklas or even sandwiches. Coconut chutney tastes amazing with dosas. Most chutneys can be frozen and stored for long periods.

Growing up, my Mom made dozens and dozens of types.  I’m sharing some in this post and will update as I document more.

The variety, texture and thickness of chutneys are varied. Dependent on the dish you are making, you may want a thicker or saucier chutney. The good thing is, it is very easy to change up the consistency.
