There will be days when we run put of coconut, onion or tomato yet in need to make some chutney recipes. This badam chutney recipe is a very unique one that my mom makes when she runs out of coconut for chutney. I love this chutney and I too make it often.

Badam Chutney Recipe
Is vegan and gluten free
So delicious and flavorful
A healthy chutney
Easy and quick to make
I usually make this badam chutney in two ways.
- With just almonds, coriander leaves
- Almonds, capsicum, onions and tamarind.
While both are delicious in their own ways we like the later more as it is more flavorful and slightly tangy. Also when you make this chutney with tamarind, you can also serve it with rice. Here I am sharing the recipe for almond chutney with capsicum, onions and tamarind.
To make badam chutney recipe use whole raw almonds. Blanched almonds make the chutney very creamy and the unique texture of the chutney will be lost. I have added green bell pepper here. You can use any colored bell pepper.
You can even use chopped green chilies instead of bell pepper. In that case you will have to increase the quantity of almonds to get more volume. This badam chutney recipe is an excellent way to include badam in your family’s diet especially if they are not fond of munching on raw almonds.
