Garlic Chutney
Garlic chutney is a great way to add warmth in the cooler months. As winters are approaching, it is the time to get back on lazy days and comfort foods. So I am here with one such recipe of a chutney, which is super beneficial specially during winters when your body needs more warmth, and has such a great flavour that you surely can't afford to miss it. Let's see what all we need for this chutney:
  1. Garlic cloves – about 10
  2. Tomatoes – one and a half
  3. Yogurt – 2 tbsp
  4. Green chili – 1 (depending on your taste)
  5.  Salt  – as per taste
  6. Vegetable oil – 1 tbsp
  7. Cumin seeds  – 1/2 tsp
  8. Black mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  9. Red chill powder  – as per taste
Method:
  1. Take a blender/mixer and blend ingredients 1–5 till a consistent thick paste is made.
  2. Heat a pan on medium-low heat and add oil
  3. Add cumin and mustard seeds once oil is hot.
  4. Add a pinch of red chill powder once cumin seeds start to splutter.
  5. Immediately add the paste we made in step 1.
  6. Mix everything nicely and let it cook covered for about 10-12 min, checking and stirring in between.
  7. Turn off heat, let it cool, serve it in a chutney bowl, and enjoy with anything you like. I love it with stuffed parathas, tehri, as a spread for a veggie sandwich, etc.
Remember, the major ingredient is garlic, so you may want to avoid having a heavy dose of it in the morning before going to work or when going out for a formal meet-up, or else don't mind brushing your teeth again! 😉 Do try this garlic chutney and let me know how it worked out for you. Happy cooking! Love, AS
