Mixed vegetable chutney recipe

Basically I love to prepare varieties of chutney recipes for breakfast. So I keep searching and trying them. Vegetable chutney recipe was in my to-do list for long time. I referred Mrs.Mallika badrinath’s chutney varieties book for this recipe & I prepared this chutney using cabbage, cauliflower, chayote & carrot. U can also add few pieces of Zucchini, Capsicum & brinjal to make it more healthy. Myself and Sendhil had a satisfaction of eating a healthy side dish for idli, dosa. It tasted great. I am sure this chutney would be a healthy n yummy replacement for our usual coconut chutney & tomato chutney recipes .
Ok, Lets see how to make this mixed veg chutney for idli, dosa. Procedure & ingredients list may seem lengthy. But its really worthy to try!
