Is garlic chutney good for health?
Garlic is the star ingredient in this chutney and has been revered for its medicinal qualities. Garlic is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that boost the immune system. It also reduces blood pressure and improves heart health. It also contains allicin, an antimicrobial sulfur compound.
What is the use of spring garlic (green garlic)?
Let’s now talk about the green touch that takes this chutney up a notch. Spring Garlic, also called green garlic, adds a mild and fresh garlic flavor to any dish. Spring garlic, unlike mature garlic bulbs, is harvested before the garlic cloves have fully developed, giving it a subtler taste. The vibrant green stalks of spring garlic and the tender white bulbs make it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of culinary preparations. Spring garlic is rich in antioxidants and essential nutrition. It not only adds flavor to salads, soups, and stir-fries, but it also has potential health benefits. The anti-inflammatory properties of spring garlic and its ability to boost the immune system make it an important ingredient that can enhance both the nutritional and flavor profile of your food. Let’s get started with the recipe for green garlic chutney.
