Fafda Chutney (Kadhi Chutney For Cholafali, Gathiya)

Fafda chutney is made from besan and procedure is little similar to kadhi method. So it is also called kadhi chutney recipe.

Fafda chutney served with fafda and sambharo.

The addition of mint leaves and coriander leaves adds very refreshing flavor. The spicy taste is coming from green chilies.

This fafda chutney has slight tang, zing to it and it comes from citric acid. If your yogurt is sour then reduce the citric acid amount.

This chutney is usually served with fafda, gathiya and cholafali. When we buy fafda, gathiya from farsan shop they will also pack complementary chutney.

The store bought one is yellowish white in color. Because they add coarsely grind green chilies vs I have pureed here and it makes my chutney greenish in color. Also they add lesser amount of green chilies vs I have added here.

And on top of that they add white pepper powder for real spicy kick which I have skipped here. The spicy taste from white pepper powder makes you sweaty, sometimes aching ears and heartburn. That’s why I have skipped it and instead added little more amount of green chilies.

Step By Step Photo Instructions:

1) Take coriander leaves, mint leaves, chopped ginger and green chilies into the grinder along with 1 tablespoon of water.

2) Make puree smooth or coarse depending on your liking texture. We do not like to bite into green chilies, so I have made smooth puree.

11) Stir well and let it come to a boil. Keep stirring with spatula or spoon so the yogurt doesn’t curdle.

12) Once it starts boiling, let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. It will become thick.

  2. Hi kanan, Born and brought up in Ahmedabad chorafali and specially chutney is my favorite food, I never seen mustard seed in chorafali chutney also sanchal (black salt) will enhanced the taste.
    thanks for sharing.4 stars

    1. Me too I was born and brought up in Ahmedabad.
      The places where I have eaten chorafali-chutney they do add mustard seeds in tempering.
      It is possible that they are making a big batch, so we might see a very few in a small bowl of katori vs homemade. But I am sure they do add.

      Yes, regarding black salt you are right. I should start adding that in my chutney.
