Usirikaya Chutney/Amla Chutney

Usirikaya/Amla/Indian goose berry has lot of nutritional value hence good for ones health. Usirikaya is very sour in taste.
Usirikaya chutney is a really old traditional recipe but almost forgotten now. I just wanted to make it and make kids taste it. They loved the chutney as it's not really a pickle and easy on the tummy.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves : 5-6


Usirikaya/Amla : 1 cup (deseeded and chopped)
Dry Red Chilies : 5 broken in half
Chana Dal/Senagapappu : 1 1/2 teaspoons
Urad dal/Minappapu : 1 1/2 teaspoons
Cumin seeds/ Jeera : 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

For Tempering:
Chana dal /Senagapappu : 1 teaspoon
Urad dal/ Minappappu : 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds/Aavalu : 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves : 2 sprigs


Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a pan add Chana Dal, Urad Dal and fry till they turn golden, add dry red chilies and fry for 1 minute. Add cumin seeds and fry for another 30 seconds. Take them out into a plate and let it cool off.

Add the Usirikaya/Amla pieces into the same pan and sauté for 5-6 minutes until the pieces are cooked well. Let them cool off.

In a blender, add the Dal mixture and then add the Amla pieces and blend into a smooth paste.

Heat oil in a pan and all the ingredients listed under for Tempering and fry for 2 minutes or until the seeds splatter. Add the chutney and mix well. Turn off the stove.

Serve with hot rice or with dosa.
