Iceberg Lettuce & Carrot Chutney / Chutney Recipe - 40 / #100chutneys

Do you buy Iceberg lettuce to prepare only salads ? Then, break the monotonous way and prepare a tasty and healthy chutney out of it. Here comes my today's interesting recipe using Iceberg lettuce and Carrot.

Iceberg lettuce is a crunchy texture vegetable which is mainly used for salads. Though it has less nutrients compared to other greens, this veggie is a very good source for weight loss because of the high water content and low calories in it. And as we all knew that Carrots are very good for eyes and also have amazing health benefits. So using these veggies, I have prepared a delicious chutney which pairs perfectly Idly and Dosa. And also, if the chutney is ground coarsely, it can be served with plain Rice and Curd rice. Adjust the quantity of green chilli according to taste bud or family's preferences.

Ingredients :

1 Tbsp Oil 
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Iceberg Lettuce, finely chopped 
1 Carrot, finely chopped 
3 - 4 Green chillies, chopped 
1 Onion, finely chopped 
Few fresh Mint leaves 
Salt to taste 

For Tadka :

1 Tsp Oil 
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
 1/2 Tsp Urad dal 
1/2 Tsp Chana dal 
A sprig of Curry leaves 
A pinch of Hing powder 

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onion.

Saute for a minute and add the remaining ingredients except salt.

Saute it together for 3 - 5 minutes and remove from the flame.

Cool the sautéed ingredients and grind into fine paste or coarsely by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

Once done, transfer the prepared chutney to a bowl and keep aside.

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

Once it starts spluttering, add urad dal followed by chana dal, curry leaf and hing powder.

Fry and add tadka to the prepared chutney.


Serving Options :

Serve with Idly, Dosa or Curd rice.
