Bread Chutney | Instant, Super Easy Chutney in 10 Minutes

A chutney is a spicy condiment of Indian origin, made of fruits or vegetables with vinegar, spices, and sugar. The word “Chutney” is derived from the word “chatni” which means “crushed”. Traditionally, chutneys are prepared using a stone grinder. As a result of slow grinding of the ingredients, chutney tastes delicious and flavorful.

Chutney is a must-have side with south Indian food and coconut chutney is one of the most popular chutneys. Making coconut chutney takes some time and if you are not living around the coastal areas you might not have access to the coconut all the time. In such a case, you can use this bread chutney as an alternative for the coconut chutney.

Helpful Tips and Tricks

  • Additions: I have prepared this chutney with minimal ingredients. However, if you want it more flavourful, you can add ground cumin powder and black pepper powder. Adding coriander greens will enhance the taste but it will also add green color to the texture. If you’re not worried about color, you can add coriander greens to the chutney.
  • Caution: Don’t make a very smooth paste of bread slices otherwise you won’t get the grainy texture.
