Kiwi Chutney | Vegan and Delicious

Updated: Feb 20

Ceylon Tastes readers rave about our mango chutney recipe! Here is another chutney to add to your list. Kiwi Chutney!! Fresh, vibrant, and bursting with flavor, you’re going to love this versatile and wonderfully delicious condiment/ Curry.

Few Tips before we begin

Picking the right Kiwi fruit- I love my chutney to be a little sour, So I chose a young, sour fruit. The choice is up to your preference

Spicyness- This recipe has a spicy kick. If you prefer a mild tone, add paprika instead of chili powder and chili flakes.

Gravy or Chunkey- I prefer to have chucks. If you prefer to have a gravy texture with soft pieces, add little extra water and cook the kiwi until it gets dissolved. Make sure to add more salt later depending on the taste.


8 - 10 Small Kiwi fruits

1/4 Cup Finely chopped Onion

1-2 Sliced Garlic

2 Tsp Coconut Oil

1/8 to 1/4 Cup Water

3 Tsp Sugar


Chili Flakes

Chili Powder



How to Make

Start by removing the skins of the kiwis (slice the skin)

Cut each kiwi into 4 pieces.( Or you can also cut each fruit into two, the slice each piece into 4)

Take a pan. I used a clay pot, but you can use any pot you prefer.

Add coconut oil

Let it heat

Add thinly sliced onion and garlic.

Let it brown.

Add the sliced Kiwi

Cook until it starts to soften for about 2-4 minutes, mixing in between.

Now add all the spices.

Mix everything once.

After 1 minute add water. If you have ripe kiwi add 1/8 cup water. If not add 1/4 cup.

Let everything simmer in low heat for 3-5 minutes or so

Add sugar

Add more water if necessary ( In case the kiwi pieces are not soften yet)

Cook everything according to your desired consistency

I like mine to have chunks. So I cooked it for additional 1-2 minutes.

If you like it to be more on the softer, Gravier side, cook for a longer time

Take off the heat

Serve and enjoy
