Our Review Factors
What were our parameters for the Amma’s Special Curry Leaf Chutney?
Primarily, we looked for fresh, authentic, homestyle flavors and texture. In addition to these, the ingredients, convenience, value for money aspect were also gauged.
Does the prepared chutney taste fresh? Does it retain the innate nutty tropical flavor of coconuts? Were classic flavors of Southern India like that of curry leaves, red chilli, mustard seeds, and roasted dal retained? What about the balance of seasoning?
We were not looking for a smooth paste. We expected a coarse, shredded texture with crunchy bites of gram dal and mustard seeds.
Taste and texture, together, are an indicator of freshness.

Considering this is a readymade chutney, ofcourse this offers convenience, but that is of no use if the product is not tasty or fresh. So we will mark it in accordance to how the product scores on the other parameters.
Amma’s Special Curry Leaf Chutney – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
This chutney is packed in a green, non-resealable pouch. It holds 180 grams of product and is priced at Rs 50/- The shelf life is of four days, which also indicated this contains no preservatives.
Roasted gram dal (25%), coconut, curry leaves, coriander leaves, ginger, green chillies, edible vegetable oil (sunflower oil), spices and condiments are the only ingredients used.
Aroma + Appearance
This chutney had a light green hue. We could see a generous quantity of mustard seeds and roasted gram dal. On a predominantly light green base, we could see specs of a deeper shade of green, which were a mix of curry/coriander leaves. This is a coarse, chunky chutney – like how a homestyle chutney usually is.
It emitted a robust aroma of curry leaves and coconut.
Taste + Texture
In terms of taste, coconut was the boldest ingredient. We could taste the tropical flavor of the nut, but it lacked the natural sweetness. This chutney was slightly sour with the citrusy notes of curry leaves. It was not too spicy, but was not the freshest-tasting either.
We liked how the coconut flakes lent a shredded texture to the chutney, adding to the aspect of authenticity.
- Priced well

- Lovely texture
