In my tiny little way I have carried on this emotional journey with the Chutney and keep these relishes, dips integrated into my food menus. As I said before that my dinning table is a small treasure chest filled with numerous chutney's, dips, pickles all homemade from scratch. It's strange but true as I open the lid of my Chutney jars and dip in the spoon, along with the tongue tapping chutney I can feel the love of the grand dames of my family coming out and enveloping not only my senses but spreading a warmth of love in my heart and mind.
Today is Maha Astami. For me it is a very significant day. In many parts of India little girls are worshiped as a symbol of the Goddess. It makes me feel very happy as I have always believed and practiced gender equality. In many parts of the world gender disparity pains me and if there are some rituals from our ancient traditions which upholds a girl, a woman in any way, I am ecstatic.
NOTE~ From the pictures you will notice that my chutney has almost a brown tinge instead of the bright yellow tinge of pineapple. There are two reasons for this. One I used raw sugar, which has a brown hue naturally. Two, I like my chutney more sweeter than normal so I increased the quantity of sugar more than mentioned in the ingredients list below. So the colour of your pineapple chutney will vary depending on these factors.
