  10. Mix fruit Chutney:
  11. This mix fruit chutney was made in an attempt to save the fruits lurking in the fridge which were threatening to rot.
  12. I have used up whatever fruits were available balancing the sweet and sour taste. I knew this would not have passed up as a jam, So to make it more flavourful I added some red chilli powder ,other spices and some refreshing mint leaves. The result was a fabulous Sweet-sour and spicy chutney which can be used as a dip for almost anything. I also had it as a substitute to tamarind chutney in pani puri!
