Mixed Grape Chutney/Compote… Add a zing to your food with this sweet n spicy Grape chutney.
Hello everyone, so, here I am, back after the tiny break, with Mixed Grape Chutney.
Mixed Grape Chutney is a very quick and easy peasy recipe. Contrary to its recipe, this grape chutney is too delicious to resist. This sweet n spicy chutney is a delight on its own. Add this in your meals and your kids would love to have food. Apply it on chapati and make a roll or just serve in addition to regular veggies, either way, it’s going to win hearts.
And, as always this is a very healthy recipe. It is full of fibre as it has fruits and has jaggery. Yes, no refined sugar is used. Jaggery not only gives wonderful taste to this chutney but also gives lovely colour.
And this Grapes Chutney is my post from alphabet G in BlogChatters A2Z Challenge 2019.
Chutneys and pickles always hold a special liking in Indian menu. In my family, there may be just one veggie in meals but there has to be different types of chutneys like green coriander chutney or Amchoor/Imli ki chutney, kachalu chat and so on.
This recipe is exactly like the way we make Green Mango Chutney/Launji. Green mango chutney is loved by all of us. Till the time raw mangoes are available, you will find this launji in our refrigerator. But once the season is over, then?
So, now you can have this Grape chutney in rotation with green mango chutney. When the raw mangoes are not available or if you wish to go for a change or add a new dish to your menu then this is the perfect chutney. You can make this chutney with whatever variety of grapes you have. The one with only black grapes tastes good too but it is actually very sweet without any tanginess. That’s why it is better to add different types of grapes or at least green and black to have the sweet n tangy taste.
This Grape Chutney has an edge over the raw mango chutney in many ways. Firstly, as grapes are available throughout the year so you can make it any time. Secondly, it requires no peeling. Just wash and use. And lastly, as grapes are already sweet therefore the need for sugar is reduced drastically. For 100 g mixed grapes, I used just1 tbsp jaggery. So, isn’t it cool?
Once made, you can keep it covered in the refrigerator easily for upto 10 to 15 days.
So, let’s see the method of making this Mixed Grape Chutney.

- .Add 2 or 3 tablespoons water. I add water as we like little syrup in the chutney. You can avoid this easily.
- Finally, add jaggery powder and cook for another 5 minutes till jaggery dissolves fully and the syrup gets thick. Colour will change as jaggery dissolves and it gets cooked. Do not cook much, as it will get thick once cooled. Remove Green Chillies.
- Serve with love, chapati and veggies optional.
Use Rock Salt (saindha namak) and have it during fasts.
