What is Garlic Chutney?
Red in colour, this Garlic Chutney is a Rajasthani dish which is made with the combination of just 7 everyday ingredients – garlic, dry red chillies, oil, ginger, cumin seeds, amchur powder and salt. You can even use red chilli powder instead of dry red chillies.
Here, to make this chutney I have cooked the garlic along with ginger and cumin seeds, but many households in Rajasthan even use raw garlic to make this chutney. So if you don’t mind the raw taste, you can grind it directly along with dry red chillies.
This delicious chutney has a punch from the use of lots of garlic, but dry red chillies and amchur powder are used to balance the flavour. While dry red chillies adds a spicy flavour to this chutney, amchur powder gives it a tangy twist.
In Maharashtrian households, a dry version of this garlic chutney is made which is popularly used in Vada Pav. You can also serve this chutney with Idli and Dosa, to add flavour to your favourite South Indian breakfast recipes.
