  5. sounds good but u didnt add chilly in it ..

  6. hi aarthi.. I did this chutney few days before but i could not be able to grind smootly coz of the stem. So i could not be able to eat that chutney. From this experiment, i came to a conclusion that i should remove the stem from the leaves.. What about u ? Pls suggest ..

  7. sitalekshmi..If you have a good blender you can even make a fine paste of the stalks too..BUt you can use the leaves alone for getting smooth paste..

  8. Aarthi for tis chutney should we add chilly ..

  9. @sumsuhi didn't use chillies, u can add if u need
