Raisins Chutney is one sweet Chutney which is made by Raisins. It is very tasty to have and it can make very easily at home. I got this recipe from my best friend Mini and I tasted it from her first and we both were working together at that time. I didn't know about this Chutney earlier. I was using Raisins to making Cake, Payasam and Puddings. I was so exited when I heard about this Chutney. I love the dishes those have mixed taste of spice, sour and sweet. We can get different types of sweets from market with this mixed taste and it can give us freshness feel. I followed the same method which I got from my friend and I am really happy to share this new taste to all. We can use it as the side dish with Dosa and Idly for Breakfast. It is also an excellent combination with Chicken Biriyani, Fish Biriyani, Egg Biriyani, Fried Rice and Vegetable Rice. Usually we are making sweet Chutney with Dates and Beetroot so this can give you a new and fresh experience. I used White Vinegar to get Sour taste. This is very thick and has creamy texture. If you need to store for long days keep it in dried bottles.
