Kashmiri Chutneys

BM # 15   Day 1

Last one week I have been posting Thaalis from different states.This week I shall give you some of the recipes from those Thaalis.Kashmiri Cuisine uses lot of dry fruits and fresh fruits in their cuisine, so here are two chutneys which are a great accompaniment with any meal.

The Doon Chetin is a sweet and sour chutney with apples and raisins.What a wonderful and unique combination.Once you start eating it you surely would not like to leave it!

The second chutney is the Walnut Chutney.This is more like a dip and I would prefer to eat it with my wraps and may be some kind of chips. It would be wonderful as a spread on a toasted multi grain bread too.Well  options are many …you have to decide.
