Notes

Variations
  • Adding Coconut – In this recipe I didn’t add coconut. If you like coconut flavor, then you can add 1 or 2 tbsp of coconut while grinding
  • Ginger, Garlic and Onion – You can add all these based on your liking. For no-onion/no garlic version, you can skip all of these and just add asafoetida while tempering.
  • Green Chili – Instead of Red Chili you can add Green chili which gives nice flavor and taste.
  • Consistency – Adjust the chutney consistency by adding Water to your liking.
