Inji Chammandi (ginger Chutney)

As a kid my mother used to force feed me with ginger extract she believed it healed tummy aches. So ginger in every form was part of our daily diet. Ginger was chopped, minced, ground, made into pickles and was part of our daily tea as well.Finally, mom's hard work paid. I grew up to be a lover of ginger and now I have it in various forms. This is an easy chutney for daily breakfasts. It has an overwhelming flavour of burnt ginger and for other ginger lovers like me this would be a great treat.
