Kovakkai chutney/ coccinia chutney

     Thinking this as an wierd recipe???  Dont worry even i thought to myself so in first place when i came across this recipe in Kumudham tamil magazine, lateron i just gave a try and beleive me i liked it very much!! Even my husband who used to be tooo choosy n his plate, liked it quite well.  So, guys, honestly give a try. Talking about medicinal properties, in traditional medicine, this   has been used to treat leprosy, fever, asthma, bronchitis and jaundice. This can be had along with morning dosa to powerstart the day as they have been also identified to purify the blood..



so as you can see, there are a cup of chopped kovakkai, 1/4 cup of chopped onions, 1-2 small bits of tamarind, 4-5 curry leaves, 2 green chilli, 4-5 garlic cloves, and half a tsp of rai and urad dal(for tempering)


Saute onions, kovakkai, green chilli and garlic cloves in kadai for some ten to fifteen minutes

Lateron when cooled, blend them in a mixie together with tamarind pieces, lastly temper with rai, urad dal and curry leaves.  Add salt to taste

This is what i call the healthy breakfast combo
