Loquat Chutney

Posted by in Grain free, Healthy Living, Indian, Paleo

In April and May there are many fruit sellers with rehdis (push carts) that go from house to house puiled with this bright orange somewhat astringent fruit. They look lovely. Summer is the time when we crave tangy stuff, so I normally buy them and make a chutney out of them. The chutney is delicious, sweet and sour and goes well with a regular dal-chawal combo.Loquat-3

I have even used the chutney to cook chicken but that recipe I’ll put up later.

 

Loquat Chutney
The recipe is similar to the one I use to make mango chutney
