red chutney for chaat

spicy red chili garlic chutney recipe – this is a spicy red chutney for chaat recipes and is made with just three ingredients – dry red chilies, garlic and salt. sometimes i make this chutney when i plan to make chaat at home.

this red chilli garlic chutney is versatile as it can be added to spice up a lot of chaat snacks like – sev puri, bhel puri, ragda patties, dahi puri, dahi sev batata puri, dahi papdi chaat, dahi vada. you can also use a bit of this chutney in wraps or as a side chutney with pakoras or vegetable momos.

there are three chutneys that are added to all the chaat snacks mentioned above – green chutney made with mint & coriander leaves, sweet tamarind dates chutney or saunth and this red chili garlic chutney.

when i plan to make chaat, then i make these chutneys a day before and refrigerate them. the green chutney stays good for 2 to 3 days. the red chutney for a week and the tamarind dates chutney or saunth chutney for about 3 weeks to a month.

i always prepare this chutney with kashmiri red chilies as they give a good deep red color and are not very heaty. if you do not get kashmiri red chilies, then use a variety of dry red chilies which are less hot. if not using the lesser hot chilies, then depending upon the heat in the chilies, reduce the amount. to make the chutney less hot, you can also deseed them.

    The recipe has come out very well and since I am a person who likes spicy things, this has appealed to me a lot and I basically loved it. The color indicates the spicy nature of it. I guess this goes a very well combination for pakodas and bondas. So with this in mind I am gonna try out this recipe tomorrow evening with hot pakodas. In this regard already I have decided to buy the best chilly available.
    Thanks for the recipe!!
