Plantain Yogurt Chutney

When i say plantain many of you (esp keralites) have plantian chips in mind. But for me i think about how much yogurt is at home to prepare chutney.
This is one of many recipes i learned from my mother-in-law. Since then its my favourite dish. An irresistible combination of thick plantain texture, hot chilles and cool yogurt. Very easy and the end result is equally satisfying.

Plantain Yogurt chutney

1 large plantain
6-7 green chilles
Yogurt as needed - approx 1 cup

For tempering:
Curry leaves
2 Red chilles
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds


Cut the plantain crosswise to 3 pieces and boil. After the plantain is cooked remove the outer skin and cut into cubes. Grind plantain cubes and chillies with yogurt till you get the required consistency of chutney. Add salt. In a pan take 2 tbsp of oil and fry all the tempering ingredients and add that to the chutney. Goes well with rice.
