RACATO CHUTNEY


Well ,well …This is my title to this chutney ,as this comprises of three veggies,and i didn’t

want a long title for this simple recipe.The culinary world today ,mostly renames old

traditional dishes,anew .When we really peek into you will know it’s the dish you already

know.So i think you will accept my title ..Radish for the first two letters has amazing

benefits for weight loss,urinary and kidney disorders ,and regulating insulin levels,and

many more benefits.Carrot for the next two letters,rich in vitamin A,C&K and many more

nutrients,is considered good for eyes,good source of antioxidant agents,and also regulates

sugar levels.Tomato for the last two,which can be categorised into a fruit or vegetable too

has amazing benefits like the radish and carrot.These three vegetables are very good if

taken raw like salads or juices…I think i’l get into the recipe now.
