This ever popular chutney is a weird thing. I mean, to me, cucumber really doesn't have that much of a distinct taste, but yet this chutney made from cucumber is packed with flavor. It is commonly found topping our doubles or eaten with aloo and channa with rice.

Chutney can be made with a fruit or a vegetable. This condiment ventured down to the Caribbean from India. It's kind of like the idea of a coleslaw, that adds a hint more flavor to a meal.

This one is easy to make and does not require any cooking time like some other chutneys. A little grate here, some chops here and it's complete

Using hot pepper gives it a kick, but if you are like me and don't want too much of a kick, make sure to NOT use the seeds and membrane of the pepper. That is where most of the heat it.

And why did I get seedless cucumbers from Target and have to pick seeds out?

Have you tried chutney before? What's your fav food to top it with?
