Black Mustard Chutney (Panitenga and Kharoli)

Black mustard seeds 
Today's recipe is about a chutney made from black mustard seeds. Many of you may have tasted yellow mustard seeds' chutney but have you ever tasted black mustard seeds' chutney ? Well, Black mustard seeds taste little bitter than yellow mustard seeds. There are two different black mustard seeds' chutney. One is called panitenga and the other is called kharoli in Assamese. The taste of panitenga is not bitter but little tangy and very strong and the taste of kharoli is also not bitter but has a strong mustard flavour.

Black mustard seeds are used to produce mustard oil. Mustard oil is an integral part of Assamese cuisine. Assamese people use mustard oil in everyday cooking. They also use raw mustard oil in salads and pitikas. We can say mustard oil is an Assamese version of olive oil. But mustard oil has a strong smell and taste and therefore everyone may not like to consume it as raw.

Panitenga and kharoli are unique recipes of its kind. Because of i…

Ahom Bogori (Peach)

Ahom Bogori (Assamese আহোম বগৰী) in English is called Peach. It's scientific name is Prunus persica. Peaches resembles and closely related to apricots and plums. Peaches are soft when ripened and are very delicious. Unlike apricot and plum, peaches have one large middle seed.  As I googled I found that peach fruit was domesticated and cultivated for the first time in Northwest China. It's a summer fruit and largely available in Assam.

It is believed that the name 'Ahom bogori' is derived from the Kingdom of Ahom. It may be because the Ahoms have brought with them the seeds of peach.  Ahom is a large community originally from the Chinese province of Yunnan, which is located on Southwest China. From Yunnan, they migrated into Myanmar and then after crossing the Patkai Mountains entered Assam. The Ahoms have established their dynasty and ruled the Ahom Kingdom, the present day Assam for about 600 years. 

We call this fruit as ahom bogori from childhood.  But according to so…
