HEALTHY VEGETABLE CHUTNEYS


Today i would like to share with you a few chutneys ,with vegetables. Any hotels or

restaurants  would serve you with coconut chutney,tomato chutney ,coriander

chutney and sambhar with dosai or iddli ,or any other rotis,which is also good.But it is

too good and healthy if you could transform a vegetable into a chutney.Children who  are

choosy with vegetables,can be given a cheat treat with these healthy chutneys.

Well i’m gonna give a few recipes i have tried ,so do try and send me your comments.
