Fafda Chutney, Besan Chutney

A breakfast of Fafda served with this Besan Chutney is every Gujarati’s idea of a perfect start to Sunday or any holiday. It may be made at home or bought readymade.

Also enjoyed on Holi and other holidays this awesome chutney amazes you with its brilliant flavour and mouth-feel. What makes it unique is that it’s homely yet there’s something special about it.

The tempering of ginger and green chillies and the final touch of lemon give the besan chutney a superb taste. Thr Fafda Chutney tends to thicken after a while so add a little water before serving if required.

Team up the fafdas with Jalebi and Gujarati Raw Papaya Chutney .
