Vilampazham Peerkangkai Chutney

#VilampazhamPeerkangkaiChutney : #Vilampazham is called #woodapple in English. It has hard outer shell and pulp inside. The taste of the pulp is tangy n sweet. Last time when I opened a wood apple the pulp inside was very tangy. So I made many trials with it. One such successful outcome is this chutney.
