4-seeds chutney as the name suggest is made out of 4 types of seeds. They contain sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds. It is one of the simplest recipe which makes a great accompaniment for a snack or meal. It has great health benefits and tastes amazing too. Who says what’s good for the health is not good for the taste-buds?

Indian cuisine is well known for the use of delicious and mouth watering chutney’s in their diet. You will find wide variety of chutneys all over India. There are wet chutneys and dry chutneys. And then there is sweet, tangy, salty and spicy chutneys. Chutneys are very healthy addition to your daily diet.

Health experts recommend eating seeds on a daily basis. And though I try it daily, eating them raw everyday does become mundane. Sunflower, pumpkin, flax and sesame seeds individually are loaded with nutrients. They are

  • heart healthy
  • good for cholesterol and immune system
  • rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants
  • helpful with blood sugar
  • full of vitamins and proteins

You can have this chutney with anything. Your top options being chapati, dosas, idlis, toast, tortillas, rice with plain dal, pita chips and much more. Also, I prefer a drizzle of ghee on my chutney. The taste and aroma of homemade ghee really adds to this dish. But if you are vegan, you can have olive oil or avocado oil on top. Finally, sprinkle either crushed mint or basil leaves to enhance the taste.

4-seeds chutney for the health conscious

The 4-seeds chutney is a great party food accompaniment. It is easy to make and amazingly tasty. Also, it is a time saving recipe that goes well on bread toasts, chapatis or idlis and dosas. The chutney is salty, sweetish and slightly spicy at the same time.

I use mortar and pestle instead of mixer grinder to make this dish. Crushing and beating of the ingredients releases their natural oils. And with the essence of all ingredients infused, it makes an amazing chutney. So, for a great chutney I always recommend you to use mortar and pestle.

You can try this chutney with Desi Ghee Sandwich.
