Pear Chutney

Did you know that chutneys are of East Indian origin?  I love to make them for their mix of sweet and sour ingredients.

The October issue of Cooking Light magazine has a delicious looking “Pear Chutney” recipe that I’d like to try.  They suggest serving their recipe with the bread, naan.  I also like to serve chutneys with pork chops and chicken.  How about you?

I started creating this pear doodle recently:

3 doodle pears - 1 done

It reminds me a little of a chutney – a “mixture” of patterns and lines.

I like the shapes too.  The first one has a typical pear shape and looks rather “sweet.”  The next 2 pears add a little “spice.”  What do you think?

It is a work in process so I will post the completed piece when I get it done.

Happy Creating!  🙂

  1. It’s so funny – just yesterday I saw something similar with an animal and got reminded that we did something like that in school, and I felt I should try that out again. Your pear looks very nice!

  8. I adore your funky “chutney”! A Bangladeshi friend made us the most amazing apple chutney with apples from our trees one year. I’d ask for her recipe but she probably just wings it, so I’ll have to look up how to in my Indian cookbook. 🙂

  12. Love your sketch :-). Curious to see how it progresses. But the version so far is really cool. Glad you took a picture. Any chance you would sell me a small print of the current version for less than $20?

  15. Love chutney, particularly fond of mango chutney with vegetarian curry. (This talk is making me hungry ;D). Also love your pear doodles, they are beautiful, they have a wonderful title and look ready to be framed and hung on a wall. Thank you for sharing.
