Kotha Chutney

Kotha chutney is made from its namesake, a fruit known as kotha. Kotha is also known as, "wood apple." In Rajasthan, kotha chutney is very popular and in Gujarat it is used to accompany the traditional dish known as undhiyu/umbadiyu. I made this chutney from dry kotha powder since it is not available in America. The chutney is very easy to make with a few simple ingredients.

Prep time: 5 to 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Servings: 4

  • 2 tablespoons dry kotha powder
  • 1 tablespoon grated gol/ jaggery/ gud (optional for sweetness)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 medium red capsicum
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  1. In a mixer, add red capsicum (cut the stem), cumin seeds, red chili powder, gol, kotha powder and salt. 
  2. Add a little water (2 tablespoons) and blend it in the mixer. 
  3. Chutney is now ready to serve.
  4. Serve with matla undhiyu or any Indian meal. Also works well with any kind of chaat.
