Actor Joju George's special 'amma chammanthi'

Actor Joju George, who is basking in the glory of the incredible success of his latest movie Joseph, is a foodie who loves to try out unique dishes. A dish that is particularly close to Joju's heart is a special chutney that goes amazingly well with rice or hot kanji (rice gruel). “It takes just 5 minutes to make this chutney. My mother taught me how to make it. So I call it ‘amma chammanthi (mother’s chutney)’,” reveals the actor. Joju shares the recipe of this chutney which is very easy to make.
