  1. Sounds so delicious! WHat do you typically have it with/in?

  2. Hi Vani

    Thanks for your comment. Its a dry chutney and it goes well with Dal-rice or just sprinkle it over curd-rice.

  3. Dear Vaidehi Bhave,

    Thanks for the above recipe. I was wanting to know since a long time how to be able to eat black sesame seeds as they have superior nutritive value.

    Also I wish to know – curry leaves dried on cloth and roast dried – can these be stored and used at a later date ? How long can these be stored ?

    Some time back I also made the “methamba” from your recipe. I ate methamba years back (1960s) when I was very small, and I visited my Nani (maternal grandmother) in her village in Gujarat and the morning snack would be the methamda and leftover rotlis. (I am born and brought up in Mumbai.) Thanks for bringing back those memories.

    My Nana (maternal Grandfather ) made the sesame chutney similar to yours but with the ingredients – garlic, jaggery, chili powder, white sesame seeds, and salt. He would make it using mortar and pestle (no electric grinders in those 1960 years !). It certainly tasted good, but yours tastes far better, and preferred, as I like food without onion and garlic.

    I am also on a very low sodium diet and that forces me to make food specially chutneys and pickles on my own. The methamba I prepared had no salt and I did not miss it as it was very flavorful. Thanks again to you.
