Taikile Chutney

I am Posting a Few recipes which are deleted from my blog - Reason I have no Idea at all.
I am not changing any content here I am just reposting it for all my lovely readers, thanks for taking your precious time and reading this blog.

A good Memory to go with this Chutney…. During those kiddo days I  remember my mamama(mom’s mom) making awesome chutneys of variety of leaves and they used to to taste Heavenly and we(aunt and me) used to relish it so much tht now We(pachi n me) miss it like crazy. She used to grind it on the grinding stone and not the mixer grinder(it wasn there then :P) and tht smoothness wud never come if ground in mixer. But now as mamama is old nd doesn use the stone I don’t get to eat such chutneys… but without forgetting Amma makes it for me now grinding on the stone(on spl request J ) and I relish it.
It so happened that when I was in Mangalore Suma had come down to my place with her sweet lil daughter Smera and I remember her relishing this chutney and telling Amma tht its very tasty J J J. She literally enjoyed it and my mom was very happy.

Not to forget Suma had got me some sweet goodies…. Which was Yummm and she even got mango pickle which was lip smacking
