Delicious Chutneys

 

Delicious & Wholesome Chutneys
Chutneys do more than add taste to a meal. When used correctly, they can aid in digestion, kindle agni and promote health. There are numerous types of chutneys incorporating the six tastes and using many different types of fruits and spices. Fruits are revered in Ayurveda, as they are one of the purest foods that enhance ojas (think vitality, immunity and strength). They are a superb source of nutrients and vitamins, not to mention their antioxidant properties. When used in chutneys with a combination of spices, these fruits can provide a delightfully tasty, yet healthy, accompaniment to dishes. It is important to consider the spices and types of fruit to use in chutneys, in conjunction with one’s constitution and current season.

Ayurvedic Supplements For Digestion
Good health depends on strong and efficient digestion.

Typically, chutneys are rather easy to prepare. In general, the fruits and spices are blended together and served. In some cases, the spices are roasted first and then added to the blender alongside the fruits.
