Roasted Pomegranate Seed Chutney

Like any good condiment, chutneys can really help elevate a meal. This roasted pomegranate seed (Anardana) chutney is no exception.anardana-chutney

It’s hard to imagine that those tiny seeds most of us see as an impediment to really enjoying a nice pomegranate can really hold so much flavour. This chutney has a subtle fruity pomegranate flavour that is very enticing. Packed with mint, I can’t decide if its cool or spicy but there is definitely a little kick.
