Red Garlic Chutney

I learned this recipe from my father. He used to tell me what to add in the chutney to make it tasty. It is a simple and easy to make chutney that is very popular in India and can be used in many different ways.  It can simply change the taste and flavor of snacks, bhel and chaats to make them tastier. You can also eat with your daily food like roti and  vegetables.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Making time: 10 minutes
Serving: 4

  • 1 whole pod of garlic
  • 2 medium green chillies
  • 5 teaspoons red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green coriander leaves
  • salt to taste

  1. Remove the skin of garlic cloves
  2. In a food processor first add garlic and green chillies and grind
  3. Add red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt and grind
  4. Add green coriander leaves and continue to grind
  5. Hot and spicy chutney is ready to eat
- For bhel and chaat add water in the chutney, mix it well and than use it.
- You can use a mortar and pestle instead of food processor. I actually find that using the mortar and pestle makes it taste so much better - it's definitely worth the effort! 
- Do not use mixer / blender as the chutney won't taste the same. Only use a food processor or mortar and pestle
It will stay fresh for one week in a refrigerator
