Kavli Kai or Karvandan che Chutney

Kavli Kai or Karvand  in Kannada and Marathi respectively is  one word has a lot of memories associated with it.

The chutney was the first time I ground something that to on the grinding stone. 
When we used to go the neighbouring colony to play there was “Karvand” bush and all of us use to pluck them and eat these fruits.
Amma used to make some kind out of this I just have a hazy memory of these berries being pricked and then were cooked in the sugar syrup. Only the berries were red and white.
And on our way to Dharwad our native place Pappa used to buy the ripe fruits called Kavli Han in Kannada which are black in colour but sweet and tasty too!!
How I miss those days!!
When I saw the raw Karvand in the market I was excited and not sure of its reception home I brought one measure from the lady.

The chutney is to be made just like Mango chutney the recipe of which is here. Only remove the stalks of the karvand I am not sure you can eat them.A white milky sap oozes out but that is okay.

Taste great with anything !

After I made the chutney I could not stop myself so I had it thus!!
