Nagaland is north eastern state of India where food is very spicy because they use green/red chilli in most of the dishes. Their cuisine mainly uses fish, pork, dried fish, chicken and some green vegetables. They don’t use oil in most of the dishes. Chutney is nice accomplishment in their menu and they prepare using fermented fish or soyabean. This dried fish chutney is very simple to make with easily available ingredients in kitchen. We can do a lot of variations to this base recipe. I adapted the recipe from here. This is quite similar to srilankan sambol where we use coconutxz. Different cuisine uses the same ingredients in different way.

I joined Shhh Secretly cooking challenge FB group and challenge for this month is Nagaland cuisine. We have group of food bloggers who are paired up and each one gives two secret ingredients based on theme. Other one needs to cook using those two secret ingredients. My partner for this month was very talented blogger Poonam Bachhav who blogs at Annapurna. She has some amazing collection of recipes. She gave me red chilli and fish as my secret ingredients. I gave her green chilli and tomato as secret ingredient and she made delicious Naga Tomato Chutney using them.
