Chutney is a savory condiment made from slow-cooked fruits and vegetable vinegar and spices. Originating from India, chutneys have traveled the globe, and every country has their take on this versatile condiment. Chutneys from South Africa will often include apricots, while British chutneys favor the use of apples. Indian chutneys can be made from a wide variety of ingredients, including fresh coriander leaves, coconut, mint, peanut, mango, or tamarind.
Kiwi is one of my favorite fruits and it’s also called Chinese gooseberry. Kiwis are small fruits that pack a lot of flavor and plenty of health benefits. Their green flesh is sweet and tangy. It’s also full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. They also have a lot of antioxidants and are a good source of fiber. Their small black seeds are edible and skin as well.
There are many easy and delicious ways to enjoy kiwifruit. I would like to add kiwi fruit in my salad, smoothies, salsa, jams, popsicles, open-faced sandwich, salad dressing, and even in no-cook pasta sauce. But my most favorite use of this fruit is in making chutney. Trust me, it always turns out super delicious. I already shared Kiwi Avocado Coriander Chutney in this chutney I used avocado and kiwi. But in this chutney, I used fresh coriander leaves and kiwi (Green & Sungold) with skin.
While many people love kiwis, there is some controversy over whether or not the skin should be eaten. Technically, the skin is edible, but some people dislike its fuzzy texture. Kiwi skins contain a high concentration of nutrients, especially fiber, folate, and vitamin E. Best way to use the whole kiwi is CHUTNEY.
