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.
