ABOUT Chili Garlic Chutney RECIPE

This is a hot, spicy and a tangy chili-garlic chutney which goes very well with dosa, idli, pesarattu or upma. Increase the quantity of chilies or tamarind pulp depending on your taste buds. The addition of some peanuts gives it a nutty flavour and the tempering also adds to the taste.
