Modhuxulung (মধুশোলেং) Chutney


Polygonum microcephalum is a green leafy vegetable found in Assam. It is called 'modhuxulung' in Assamese . It is sour in taste specially used in making sour lentil soups and sour fish curries. Modhuxulung is a bushy tree with tiny white flowers.

We have a modhuxulung tree at our home. We do not consume it's flowers but it's leaves are edible and I often use it's leaves as a souring agent in making Assamese sour fish curry.

Today I am going to share a simple chutney recipe using modhuxulung leaves. Modhuxulung leaves are found in Assam only and I don't know about it's existence in any other place in this globe.  So if you don't have modhuxulung leaves, instead of modhuxulung leaves you can use any leaves which has a little sour taste.

This chutney can be served as a side dish with rice or roti (Indian bread) but it can also be served with fritters .

Assamese cuisine is less spicy in compared to the other Indian cuisines. In this chutney also I am using very less amount of oil and spices.  Every vegetable has its own taste and use of lots of spices spoiled the original taste of the vegetables. But if you like it more spicy, you can modify the taste by using more spices.
