Horsegram - Sweet Corn Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 4 #100chutneys

Everyone must be familiar with a super food "Horse gram" which is popular for weight loss. It is high in protein, calcium and iron. In addition, consuming horse gram produces heat in our body to keep us warm during winter days. Many varieties of recipes can be prepared using this amazing ingredient like curries, pulao, kuzhambu, chutney etc. In my today's recipe, I have used this along with sweet corn kernels to prepare a delicious and tasty chutney. This chutney is a huge hit among my family members especially the one in my home who hates horse gram loved this chutney a lot. What else can I expect more than the satisfaction of serving a healthy meal to my loved ones. This chutney goes perfect with Idli or Dosa. Fresh red chillies are used in this recipe but dried ones can also be used, if fresh ones are not available. Adjust the quantity of chilies according to taste bud.
