I suddenly remembered this Chutney , which is very nice to eat with idli, rava idli, dosa, puri, paratha and Pongal. Whenever we visited Bangalore we love to eat at Hotel Chalukya. This chutney is their speciality. I had an opportunity to learn this recipe from one of their Chef’s and I am immensely pleased to share this recipe with all of you.Can store this chutney for 2 days in the refrigerator.
