Starfruit Chutney (Kordoi Chutney)


   Starfruit is also known as Carambola. It is yellow in colour and have five angle in shape. Starfruit is sweet as well as sour in taste and is very rich in vitamin C. The starfruit tree is a small bushy tree. We too have a starfruit tree at our home. In Assamese we called it 'Kordoi' .
 
    Many recipies can be made using starfruit,  but my favourite one is smoked or grilled 'goroi' fish mashed or pitika with grilled starfruit. I can eat raw starfruit also. I like it very much. Starfruit chutney is sweet and sour in taste. It can be served with roti, paratha or naan as a side dish.

Bhoot Jolokia Pickle / Ghost Chilli Pickle

Bhoot jolokia/Bhut jolokia (ভোট জলকীয়া) or Ghost chilli is one of the hottest chilli on earth cultivated basically in Assam and some other parts of northeast India. The bhoot jolokias are two or three inches long and starts out green in colour.  It turns red only when ripened.  This ripened ghost chilli in the first bite gives an intense sweet chilli flavor.  The heat doesn't kick at the beginning. As you started chewing it, the heat kicks in and your mouth started burning together starts sweating and watery eyes.

Don't touch ghost chilli with bare hands after cutting.  But as we Assamese people do not use spoon and fork and eat our meal with our fingers, we have the practice of touching this red hot chili with our bare hands.

But you don't try this and don't even touch bhoot jolokia with bare hands if you don't have practice.  Today I m…

Instant Green Chilli Pickle in Mustard Recipe

Hey!  I'm back again with another Green chilli pickle. Hope you are not bored with my continuous pickle recipes. Summer is meant for pickling and I have still many pickles to made in my mind. Hope you liked my previous green chilli pickle recipe. Today I'm going to share an instant green chilli pickle recipe which you can serve to your guests instantly after making. This green chilli pickle is very easy to prepare. The taste of this pickle is hot and sour.  This is similar to the chilli chutney that is usually served in marriage parties. I'm using medium hot Indian variety of  green chillies for making this Instant pickle. Green chillies are dipped into the mustard seeds' paste and the use of vinegar makes the pickle sour to taste. You can serve this pickle with rice or roti (Indian bread)  as a side dish,  but I like to have this pickle with fritters (pakoras) too.
