Dear readers, if you have been reading yours truly blog for some length of time now, my affinity to chutneys and raitas is a no-brainer. I love preparing my accompaniments whether it’s a well thought of raita, salad or quickly grinded chutneys. Any elaborate meal served at my home is never complete without any salad or a colorful chutney in the thali.
In Indian cuisine, Garlic is an important ingredient that goes into making of chutneys and which can change the flavor of any dish. It adds subtlety when used in proportion and at times may overpower other flavors in a dish with its pungency. We have shared different versions of garlic chutney on our blog, like Dry Lasun chutney from Maharashtra for zesty wada pav, South Indian garlic chutney for the Idlis and Dosas and Rajasthani Lasuni Chutney to pair up with your Bajra roti and Khichdi.
Today we are sharing the Gujarati version of Garlic Chutney which is hot, spicy and fiery! Traditionally it’s grinded with Sil-Batta (Grinding stone) but with modernization Sil-Batta has given way to electric grinder and we can quickly whip up this chutney in no time. It can be paired up with Bhajiyas and Pakoda. Last week, we fried some Bread Bhajiyas and made some Garlic chutney and this combination turned out to be a hit at my home. This chutney can be applied in Dabeli, Sandwiches and also with relished with Khichdi. It can be stored in refrigerator and used for 10-15 days, but ensure that the lid of the jar is tight enough or else you may end up with the contents in the refrigerator smelling garlicky.
