Chutneys are an integral part of Indian cuisine. Each region has its specialties. I tried this Kashmiri-style walnut chutney at a restaurant. They hosted Kashmiri food festivals, and this chutney was part of the meal.

When I asked the chef about it, he told me that traditionally, this condiment was made using a stone mortar and pestle. But now, they make it using electric mixers and grinders to quicken the process.

About Walnut Chutney

Walnut Chutney (Doon Chetin) is a Kashmiri condiment made with walnuts, yogurt, and a few other ingredients. It has a rich, nutty taste with a hint of sweetness and a spicy kick.

Kashmir grows a lot of walnuts, and this chutney is a perfect way to celebrate the produce.

Serve it with Kashmiri-style meals or any Indian meal to enhance the taste.

Ingredients

Walnuts – Use high-quality walnut kernels. Walnuts go rancid very soon, so taste them before making the chutney.

Plain Yogurt (Dahi, Curd) – Use homemade dahi or buy a tub.

Some people also add 1-2 cloves (laung) to this recipe. You can try it too.
