Plums are low calorie power food packed with amazing health benefits. Apart from enjoying these seasonal beauties as a healthy snack and in salads , i use plums to make a flavorful chutney which goes well with Indian flat breads like chapati , paratha and as accompaniment with idli and dosa.

Fresh Plum Chutney / Aloo Bukhare ki Chutney

Ingredients to make Fresh Plum Chutney / Aloo Bukhare ki Chutney

  • 6-7 plums ( approx 250 grams) , quartered and pitted
  • 1/4 cup crushed jaggery (add more if the fruit is tart)
  • 1 teaspoon red chilly powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric Powder (optional)
  • Black salt to taste

How to make Fresh Plum Chutney / Aloo Bukhare ki Chutney

  1. In a sauce pan add the plum wedges and crushed jaggery and heat over medium flame.
  2. Allow the jaggery to melt completely . The plum will cook and become tender in the juices. This may take about 8-10 minutes on low flame. Keep stirring in between to ensure the mixture does not catch the bottom.
  3. Once the plum is cooked properly , add all the spices ( red chilly powder, turmeric powder, dry ginger powder, cinnamon powder ) and black salt. Stir well.
  4. Cook the chutney for 2-3 minutes on low heat and put off the flame. Allow it to cool down completely before transferring it to a clean, dry glass jar.Serve it with bread and cheese , with paratha or as a dip with grilled or roasted snack.

My Tip:

The recipe can be easily doubled. The amount of jaggery depends on the tartness of plums so adjust accordingly. You can use black pepper powder instead of red chilly powder. Whole spices like star anise, cinnamon stick and clove can be added to enhance the flavors of spices in the chutney.
