What is Chutney Recipe?
In Indian subcontinent cuisines, chutney is a spread. Chutneys come in a variety of flavours and textures, including tomato relish, ground peanut garnish, yoghurt or curd, cucumber, spicy coconut, spicy onion, or mint dipping sauce. Ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom, raisin, mango, tamarind, citrus fruit, apricot,
peach, coriander, mint, onion, and garlic are the most common flavours in chutney.
Chutney is derived from the Hindi word Chatna, which means to lick or to eat with appetite. In India, chutney refers to both fresh and pickled preparations; however, several Indian languages only use the word for fresh preparations.
Thogayal or thuvayal (Tamil) are preparations similar to chutney but with a pasty consistency in Tamil Nadu. Pacchadi is another name for it in Andhra Pradesh. It is also known as chammanthi in Kerala and tokku or pacchadi in Telangana. When the word chutney is used alone, it refers to thengai chutney, a coconut-based chutney.
About Chilli Lemon Chutney Recipe
I made this and served it with Ragi Adai which I will post soon..Actually it was so good because the adai was so mild and it needed some kick to it..This chutney satisfied that. This goes well with idli and dosa as well.

Ingredients for Spicy & Tangy Red Chilli Garlic Chutney
Dry Red Chilli :
Dry red chilli is a condiment that enhances the flavour and colour of food. It contains medicinal and homoeopathic properties. We provide red chillies that are uniform in shape and size. It is mostly used to season foods. The chillies have a strong flavour.
Garlic has a distinct, pungent flavour that, when raw, borders on spicy and, when cooked, borders on nutty. Sulfur compounds, such as diallyl disulfide, contribute to the mustard-like flavour profile. It loses its acrid raw flavour when dried and crushed into garlic powder, making it ideal for seasoning dishes.
Mustard Seeds :
They are used as a seasoning rather than a base flavour in many Indian dishes, and they really perk up a lentil or rice dish when fried in a little oil with curry leaves . As a result, mustard seeds are excellent for adding flavour without adding fat to your diet.
