Let me introduce to my readers what a chutney is. Chutney is a sauce made with fruits, vegetable, herbs and spices usually preserved in sugar and vinegar. Originating from the Indian subcontinent, it is usually served with the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. However, it is now very popular all over the world and served along side many different cuisines.
