She loves Food,She Loves to eat and Loves to share her recipes also...Mostly Indian recipes...Welcome to Mousumi's Kitchen....

Mixed Fruit Chutney is basically a Bengali Desert. All Bengali Moms are expert to make this dish (Chutney). I never tasted Chutney tastier than what my mother cooked for me. I am simply fond of my mother’s recipe. Many a times, I tried to prepare the dish under the guidance of mom, but always found something lacking. Of late I have also gathered expertise in preparing this particular dish. I am going to share the recipe, which I learnt from my mom.

I use Panch phoran ( five types seeds) which consists of Nigella seed, cumin seed, fenugreek,black mustard seed and fennel seed in equal amounts. Panch phoron is specially used by Bengali's in India. It helps to add a different flavor in your dish.

The preparation is easy and takes a little time. It is said that the dish is equally healthy and help in digestion.

Health Facts:

From the name, one can understand there are lots of nutritions are included in this dish.One can add more fruits (than I mentioned above) to increase the health factors.You can add Honey in place of Sugar.But best taste comes from Sugar.So I suggest to mixed both of them to maintain the taste and health facts.
