I was not able to sit in a place when I had a glance at taikile chutney in ''Aparna's blog from aps kitchen''. It remind me the day when I went to her place with my daughter. I must surly appreciate her mom making tikile vada (tikile ambado) , mangalore buns, halwa and few more goodies. I enjoyed to my fullest having those and remaining I packed to my home :) I was not aware of what tikile is. She gave me its chutney for taste which also I loved it and my smera ohhhh boy, she just adore having it as it is and I guess she had almost finished it off :)

I have come acrossed many chutney but the one that really popped my eyes was this chutney. This was entirly new to me. Thus I decided to make them for sure because this is somewhat unique chutney I haven't prepared nor seen. When my loving, talented sweet pal aparna posted this recipe along with the picture of tikilo leaves (cassia tora), I immediatly showed the pic to my fatherinlaw and the very next day he bought it for me. Thats so nice of him na? I prepared this chutney that day itself for dinner with onion dosa. It was just outstanding. The changes I made here is I added grated ginger and lime juice for tangy flavour as the additional of tamarind was less. But this did not compromise the flavour. We enjoyed it so much.


1 cup washed and drained taikilo leaves.

1/2 cup Grated Coconut.

2 tsp Jeera.

1 tbsp Grated Ginger.

Tamarind (as per needed)

3 Dried Red chillies.

1 tbsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Lime juice (optional )


Heat oil in a pan. Add jeera, grated ginger, red chillies and coconut and fry till the coconut is semi roasted. Now add the taikilo leaves and fry until leaves have changed their color. Lastly drop in the tamarind and saute for another 2 min.

Transfer it into a bowl add salt and mix well. Add lime juice if u prefer more tanginess.

Serve with idlies or dosa.
