Aalyaa Chatni is an absolutely delicious chutney made using Aala (Marathi Word) i.e. Ginger/Adrak. This chutney is made traditionally in the NKGSB cuisine of Karwar and in many other Saraswat communities too.
It is quite a simple recipe and might appear to be a very bland or tasteless chutney going by it’s looks. But, not to be fooled by it’s appearance, this chutney is extremely flavourful which goes well with daal rice, Idli Saambar, dosa, meduwada, etc. The combination of ginger with fresh coconut, green chillies and tamarind creates quite a tempting flavour, and knowing the benefits of these ingredients, especially ginger, makes it quite nutritious too!
