Siru keerai Chutney | Tropical Amaranthus Chutney

For the final day of the BM Edition 8, I thought I should post this chutney that Athamma makes with the Amaranthus or Siru Keerai as we call it. Mostly we make it as pappu or stir fry. For a change she wanted to make it as a chutney. It went well with steaming Rice.

The last two weeks was wonderful with me trying out new condiments. And for the mela I am sure I am going to get loads of them which will be great add on to our regular meal. 

I hope you enjoyed these two weeks of marathon. Let's check this simple recipe.
