Watermelon Rind & Carrot Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 48 / #100chutneys

Today's chutney recipe is using Watermelon Rind and Carrot which pairs perfectly with Idly and Dosa. Watermelon rind is nothing but the white part of the watermelon fruit and it is completely edible. Most of them usually discard the white part as it has no taste but these can also be used in our regular cooking. Since it is high in water content, it can be replaced with the vegetables like Bottle gourd, Ash gourd etc. Many interesting recipes can be prepared out of these and I have also shared few links below. The addition of carrot along with rind makes the chutney more tasty and healthy.
