The easiest no cook and my favorite chutney, apple butter chutney, which needs no tamarind. It is sweet and spicy with its main component from apples, apple butter! No prep time needed, just mixing!
Make this chutney to go with many Indian dishes such as samosas, chaats, dabeli, vada pav, pani puri to name a few. It replaces the need for tamarind chutney, and it just may become your favorite too.
Time to make: 5 minutes
