Lemon & Red Chili Chutney

Best Blogger Tips
Let me begin by wishing everyone a very happy new year. After a very long hiatus, due to work and family commitments, I finally put up a post on this blog. So whoever, thought this blog was dead, will need to wait some more. As a resolution, I plan to devote more time to this blog. So 2011 will see changes in its look and contents as we coast along experiencing this new year.
The current post is a small recipe for a fiery chutney (relish) that goes well with chips or some subtle croquettes. My spouse and I encountered some nice fresh chillies at the local once-a-week 'mandi' (Indian word for market) and we bought loads of them. Now that we had them, we wondered what to do with them apart from the usual Red Chili Pickle which everyone seems to be doing with chillies in Delhi at this time of the year. Thus was born this tasty yet hot relish that we seem to match with every started these days.

Hey thanks for your comment. You can use it as a dip for a variety of appetizers. It will go very well with momos.You can view the recipe and video here:
it can also go well and be a refreshing change with cocktail sticks and some kababs as against serving them with mint chutney or a tomato chili sauce.
Let me know how it goes ...it will be hot depending on the chillis used.
