Chilli Garlic Chutney Recipe

Its been a while since i posted any chutney recipe. I love trying different chutney recipes. You can see my love for chutney from this post..

Check my Other Chutney Recipes

This chutney is for those spice lover and garlic lover. So it fits me perfectly. It is spicy tangy and very very garlicky. I love it so much, i make a jar of it every now and then and keep it in fridge and use as needed. This has very long shelf life as well. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 5 to 10 mins
Serves : 4 to 6


Dry Red Chillies - 12
Garlic - 15 fat cloves
Tamarind - 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Oil - 6 tblspn (Use gingelly oil)
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp


Soak dry red chillies in warm water for 10 mins.

Drain them, add it to a blender, along with garlic, tamarind, salt. Add very little water and make it into a fine puree.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add in mustard seeds and let it splatter.

Add in the chutney and cook on low heat till oil separates.
