Karale (कारळे) /Khurasni(खुरसणी) Chutney

Well this is not the Karela vegetable..these are seeds typically called as karale कारळे in Marathi. Here in Bangalore I bought these seeds during Lalbagh flower show in one of the local stall. You may find it in some of kirana stores here..but I would suggest carry a picture of it to show and identify perfectly. 
Ok so how does this chutney tastes..I would say somewhat similar to Flax seeds chutney  that I had posted. However the structure is more coarse than Flax seeds chutney .

Quite simple ones though
1. 1/2 cup karale कारळे
2. 1/2 cup sesame seeds
3. 1 tbsp cumin seeds
4. 1-1/2 tbsp coriander seeds
5. 5-6 cloves of Garlic
6. 4-5 tbsp red chilli powder
7. Salt to taste

1. Dry roast karale and sesame seeds separately
2. Dry roast cumin seeds and coriander seeds separately
3. Let the all ingredients,  cool to room temperature, add red chilli powder, salt and garlic and then grind to fine powder using a mixer grinder

Serve with chapati, rice or bhakari as side dish.

  1. what is shelf life of this karale Chutney?

    1. Hi Nivedita,
      In dry weather it stays good in air tight container for nearly 15 days.
      For longer storage I prefer to keep in fridge in air tight container.
      Hope this helps
