Kale Chutney | Kale Thogayal | Chutney Recipe

Kale Chutney, a healthy and tasty chutney made the kale. In recent times, kale becomes so popular and i have seen lot of recipe with kale on the social media, it's considered as one of the nutritious greens by the nutritionist. It has so many vital vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, so it's highly recommended by nutritionist to include in our diet frequently. But kale is totally new to me, apart from making chips which we love to the core, i haven't had any idea on how to use it in our daily cooking. 
After knowing the nutritional value of kale, i thought of include them in our diet more frequently, but the recipes that i found online for kale were mostly salads, since we are not salad people, i bought them very rarely for chips only. Recently when i chat with my neighbor, she told me that she makes chutney with kale, instantly i love the idea, but i forget to ask her for the recipe, so i went with the my favorite coriander chutney recipe instead of coriander i used kale. To my surprise, it was so good and really liked it, ever since it's became one of the regular chutney in my home for the morning breakfast, sometime i made them as thick thogayal and had with rice too, either way it taste awesome.
