Wishing all my reader’s a very Happy and prosperous Diwali! I hope everyone is having a ‘blast’ 🙂
Red chilli garlic chutney, a hot & spicy chutney with a prominent garlic flavor is must for all Indian chaat snacks. It adds loads of flavor and works in harmony with the other 2 essential chaat chutneys i.e. Cilantro-mint chutney & Date-tamarind chutney, both of which I’ll be sharing in the coming days.
This chutney is so simple to prepare at home, all you need are just 3 basic ingredients , chilli and garlic of course as the name suggest and some lemon juice to brighten this chutney up further which also balances the spice from the chillies.
Ingredients: Measuring cup used, 1 cup = 250 ml
10 Kashmiri dry red chillies/1 tablespoon Kashmiri chilly powder
8 large garlic cloves / 16 small garlic cloves
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
salt to taste
1.De-seed the Kashmiri chillies, also discard the stalk and inner membrane & soak it in 1 cup of hot water for about an hour. I sometimes soak it in normal water and leave it overnight.
2. In your mixer/blender, add all the ingredients, blend to a smooth paste, using 1 tablespoon of purified/boiled water if needed. The chutney is ready. If using immediately, you can remove some chutney in a separate bowl, add little water for a dropping consistency. Store the remaining chutney in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Stays good for about a week when refrigerated.
