Now cover the lid and cook it until you hear 3-4 whistles


Switch off the flame. Cool and strain the mixture. Grind the pulp and the extract together in a mixer grinder. Grind until you have a smooth paste. Take a sieve and strain this paste again. Keep pressing and stirring the spoon so that the chutney is nicely strained, and is without any chunk of fibre.
