This is like my favourite chutney. I make them quite often because they are so easy to make and taste so yum. When i make this, i try to get a double batch of it, so i can keep it in fridge and have it whenever i need. My little one like this chutney a lot, so i make this with less chilli powder and have it in fridge, she loves it with her dosa or idli, she licks my fingers when i feed her this..It is like finger licking good..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
