Khatti Palak chutney is yet one more excellent chutney made with Chukka kura also commonly known as Khatta palak, ambat chukka etc, which is a sour leafy green and is tangy to taste when cooked. The vibrant coloured greens added to spices with a garlicy flavour and tempering of curry leaves balances the tartness of the greens. Khatti Palak chutney can be savoured with hot rice, a generous helping of ghee (clarified butter) and raw onion. 

Chutney or Pachadis gives a euphoric feeling to many mainly for their spicy and tangy flavour. It is the basic item in a thali in any Indian food, either for breakfast, or along with parathas or even along with a tea time snack.  Chutneys are either made like pickles or made from fresh ingredients like herbs, vegetables or even certain fruits. It is an important ingredient for serving idli, dosa, vada, uttapam, Sandwiches or most chat items like samosa, pakora, aloo paratha and so on. in short, it is the main component for Indian snack item. Chutney can also be made with fruits, vegetables, herb or spices. Most of the famous chutney recipes are made using coconut, mint, coriander, ginger, mango, tamarind, red chilli, green chilli, peanut, tomato. Some of the chutneys are Idli Peanut Chutney, Tomato Chutney, Coconut Chutney, Cucumber Chutney, Ginger Chutney….

Khatti Palak, or Rumex vesicarius, is a green leafy plant cultivated for its leaves and commonly known as ‘Green sorrel’. Seen most often in markets throughout India and surrounding countries. It is available year-round in sub-tropical climates, with a peak season during the summer months. Chukka kura is a sour leafy green available in our parts with fleshy leaves similar in looks to spinach and a flavor as tangy as red sorrel. You can also make Chukka Kura Salan with this leafy veggie

Cooking Tips:

  • These chutney ‘s taste awesome when ground in traditional mortar and pestle. If you have the equipment and energy to make it that way, believe me, you can get the real taste of these chutney’s.

Health Tips:

  • Chutney acts as an appetizer and also some are good for digestion.
  • Chukka leaves are high in vitamin C, and contain beta-carotene and lutein as well as antioxidant properties.
  • Chukka has also been used to aid in digestion and relieve constipation due to the presence of high amounts of fiber.

Enjoy it with chapati, hot rice or even a curd rice. You will love it for its heavenly taste!! Yumm….
