Imli Ki Chutney

Tangy Chutneys and sauces go very well with fried bhajiya’s and crisp pakodas (Indian snacks) in cold weather when it is raining outside. You can also use this pungent chutney along with Indian chaats.

Store this sweet, sour and hot chutney in air-tight glass jars in the refrigerator. Use in within a month.
