Chukka Kura & Walnut Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 47 / #100chutneys


Chukka kura which is also popularly known as Khatta palak has a sour taste and generally used in dal and stir fries. In Andhra and Telangana, these leaves are used in Pachadi / Chutney and served along with Rice. In my today's chutney recipe, I have used these leaves along with a healthy ingredient Walnut to prepare a creamy and delicious chutney to pair with plain rice. This chutney can also be served with Idly and Dosa.

Ingredients :

2 Tsp Oil
1 1/2 Cup Chukka kura leaves 
2 - 3 Green chillies ( Adjust according to taste bud ) 
1/2 Tsp Cumin seeds
4 - 5 Walnuts
3 Garlic pods
3 Tbsp Coriander leaves, finely chopped 
Salt to taste

For Tadka :

1 Tsp Oil
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
2 Green chillies, sliced

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds followed by green chillies, garlic and coriander leaves.

Saute it for half a minute and add walnut along with chukka kura leaves.

Saute until the leaves get cooked.

Once done, remove from the flame and cool the ingredients.

Grind into fine paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

Transfer it to a bowl and keep aside.

For tadka, heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add green chillies and fry it for half a minute.

Add the prepared tadka to the chutney and serve.


Serving Options :

Serve with Rice, Idly or Dosa.

  13. Very interesting and unique flavour combination! I've never heard of khatta palak here. Would ordinary spinach with basil leaves make a closer taste?

    1. Yes you can use regular palak but include little lemon juice while grinding to get a mild tangy flavour.
