Note:

1) I recently had a different variation of the Chutney at Hubby’s aunt’s place, where she didn’t add any water to the chutney and let it remain a little coarse (and not the usual smooth paste) and that too tasted yum with the main course…

2) My mom doesn’t add onions to the chutney, instead she puts Roasted split chana (Daaliya), that too tastes good.
