Sukha Lehsun Chutney (Dry Garlic Chutney)



This beautiful bright red colour chutney is a great meal accompaniment. I usually make it and store it in the refrigerator. It stays long and can be kept in refrigerator for 15 days. It is generously eaten with vada pav. It goes well with chapatis, bajra and jowar rotis, bread, khichdi, theplas.  It is a Maharashtrian cuisine dish and it is quite often served with their famous dishes such as zunka bhakar and pithla.

Just put this chutney into any flour. knead the dough and make rotis from it. It will just increase its flavor.

This chutney can be made in a mixer grinder by grinding it coarsely or in a small processor. But I like to make it in my mortar pestle. It enhances its taste. I always keep it in my fridge.

My grandmother told me the reason for pouring hot oil in the chutney. She said it kept its freshness long and during their time there were no fridge. They kept the chutney for 3-4 days outside by pouring hot oil in the chutney.
