Condiments made from fruit or vegetables served with Indian meals
Chutney is a term used to describe condiments made from traditional fruit or vegetables and served with all Indian meals. Unlike Western chutneys, these are often not cooked but are more like relish, and are notable for their fresh flavors. One of the more popular ingredients used in making chutney is mango. Other popular ingredients include apples, plums, limes and tomatoes. Chutney can be served as a condiment or as a snack with bread and crackers.
