Sundakkai Chutney / Turkey Berry Chutney Recipe

Even though sundakkai is very healthy, there are only very few recipes using it. Even if we use sundakkai in recipes, people usually take it out and keep it aside. Sundakkai chutney solves this problem as the sundakkai is completely ground into a paste and nobody would know it.  Everyone likes the taste and are surprised when told that the ingredient is sundakkai / Turkey Berry. All in my family loved this chutney.
I recommend this strongly for kids (and also elderly) because sundakkai is known for clearing the stomach worms and also control sugar levels.
