Chutneys have been ruling our hearts for ages. Isn’t it? But what’s special in the authentic ‘gaon ki chutney’? The ingredients are all same but what makes it different? The fact that it is not prepared using modern mixers and grinders but the OG ‘Silbatta’.
Indian cooking was different when we used traditional tools. Though we have moved ahead and started using the quicker alternatives, the significance of traditional kitchen tools could never be forgotten. One such tool that is hardly found in Indian kitchens these days is the Silbatta.
Silbatta is the OG chutney maker of India and the flavour it gives to chutney is unmatched. For those who don’t know, sil is a flat stone slab whereas batta is a cylindrical shaped tool that does the work of grinding. Not only chutneys but this traditional tool was extensively used in grinding so many ingredients. If you have had a chutney made on silbatta even once, you know how special it is.
Recently, Chef Kunal Kapur took to Instagram and shared the recipe of ‘Gaon Ki Chutney’. He wrote “recipe alert! Silbatte wali 'Gaon ki Chutney' to make your meal and day more spicyy! Do try it!'. Do you know what’s unique in this chutney? It was made using Silbatta. It has basic ingredients like whole red chilies, garlic, and hing but tastes delicious. If you have silbatta at home, take it out from the shelf and prep it for making this amazing chutney, and for those who don’t have it at home, make this chutney in the grinder to have the feel. You can have this fiery chutney with roti, rice, dosa, and whatnot! Follow the steps below:
