Bhindi chutney looks delicious. Never heard of this before! Sounds easy to prepare. Will try out and let u know how it goes.

Anu! Good to see this post on Bhindi Chutney which I announced on thin air and vanished for a while!

All: Would you like to explore this: A small variation from Chef Anu’s version. Instead of adding coriander seeds, add a nice fresh bunch of coriander leaves! The taste is heavenllllly!!! And you could add green chillies instead of dry red chillies. Optionally can add a dash of jaggery (to get a sweet/sour/spice punch!)

Wanna explore?

Welcome back 🙂
