I love chutney - I do not get Indian food enough (besides the sauce I pick up in jars and an occasional dinner out on a whim)...I remember a place we would go to all the time like 4 years ago that had a buffet with a few chutneys I loved! I loved tamarind and cilantro the best - I miss it!

On Monday I made a simple date chutney from the Candle Cafe cookbook. I am looking for more chutney ideas that are simple and do not require exotic spices. I cannot even find ginger here if it is not winter time...

You can't find ginger in Modesto?

Coconut chutney is probably the most popular chutney in India. Mango chutney would also be fun this time of year. But if you can't find ginger then you might not be able to find the proper ingredients for authentic Indian food.

Sprouts & Raley's were both out unless I was looking in the wrong spot.

no end of chutneys here in the U.K.

http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipes/chutney-recipes.aspx

they are not difficult to make as they do not have to 'set' as jam / jelly does ... I make a green tomato one every year ... with red tomatoes if there are not enough green ones to hand ... makes a excellent, impressive gift!

I am an inexperienced chutney consumer, but I bought a mint chutney from the Indian market and it is addictive! Such a great combo of mint, salty, and spicy. I need to make a batch myself with the mint in my garden and think it would be easy to do: The ingredients on this version (I have no clue but imagine there are a bunch of variations with mint chutney one could do) are mint, water, green chiles, coriander, ginger, salt, vinegar.

Sarah B of My New Roots just posted a mint chutney that I can't wait to try.

I also really like the Roasted Lemon Chutney from 101 Cookbooks, and I just subbed out the honey.

If you can't find fresh ginger, I'd just try some powdered in a recipe anyway might not be quite the same but I bet it will still be pretty darn good! I sub a lot of fresh things for dried or dried for fresh, and even if it does want taste exactly the same its usually still tasty.

If you need or want to try making any chutneys or other Indian things and can't find the right spices, per me know and we can do a swap and I'll send you whatever spices you're looking for.
