Garlic chutney is a spicy and tasty chutney that makes a great accompaniment with bhakri, set dosas, ambolis ( maharashtrian thick dosas) or even dal/ rice.
4 to 5 cloves of garlic
1/2 fresh grated coconut
A pinch of turmeric
2 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder (adjust to taste)
A pinch of asafoetida
A piece of tamarind
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste
Grind fresh grated coconut, garlic, turmeric powder, asafoetida, red chilli powder, tamarind, sugar and salt to a coarse paste without adding water.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve lasnichi chutney and white butter along with bhakris, ambolis ( maharashtrian thick dosas), set dosa.
Store in referigerator if not using immediately. Tastes best when served fresh.
Kashmiri chilli powder gives a nice colour. I have added extra chilli powder as we like it spicy, hence the dark colour to the chutney.
