Chutney


One of the ECST guys in the office is getting married! So his team had a potluck party for him last Friday. I am not with the team but my desk is in the lab so I was invited. I know most of them by face but I don’t really mingle with them. I feel like slowly creeping into somebody else’s pocket whenever I have to be or deal with people I really don’t get to be with a lot.

Anyway, my Iranian officemate forced me to get up and get some sweets so I did. We stayed with the group while we enjoyed watching the groom-to-be open the gifts from his teammates. Not long after I got back to my desk, an Indian officemate brought me a plate with a little of everything, since there was just too much food for everyone. What caught my eyes the most though, is the green thingy on the plate.

This is what they call chutney- a hot and spicy condiment
made of cilantro, ginger, garlic, hot green peppers and some lemon juice.

I love it! I brought it home and it completed my dinner of rice and fried chicken. According to Wiki, this can be made with fruits too! I wanted to try making my own version with crunchy green mangoes. YUM! Now, I'm drooling...

So there goes my green ruby Tuesday for St. Patrick's day!

That chutney looks nice. As pretty as it looks, I am sure that it tastes even better - yet surely hotter! A true emerald!

The chutney has a really shiny, deep emerald green color.
Glad you went, and glad it turned out well.
I agree. Mingling is not an easy thing to do.

It sounds really good. I always think about making some with tomatoes but never get around to it.
