CHILLI GARLIC CHUTNEY MADE WITH DRY RED CHILLIES.


This recipe comes handy when you don't find fresh red chillies in the market. It really tastes as good as the one made from fresh chillies. This chutney can be  preserved in the refrigerator for a longer time if you saute it in oil. You can also freeze it in smaller containers so that it can be easily used without having to thaw the entire lot.
This chutney goes well with all the snacks. You can even add a little to your marinations or Chinese preparations. If you do not like it to be very spicy you can add some Kashmiri red chillies, tomato puree to make it milder.


Ingredients:
Dry red chillies .... 12  (spicy variety)
Kashmiri red chillies .. 6
Garlic .................... 1 pod
Tomato puree ....... 1 tbsp
Tomato ketchup .... 1/2 tbsp (optional)
Salt ........................ as needed
Vinegar ................. 1 tbsp
Oil ....................... 1/4 cup

Method:

Soak the chillies for about one hour discarding the stems.









Boil them in 1 cup water for 5-6 minutes.








Grind them along with the garlic. You can add a little water if needed.








Make a smooth paste.








Heat oil in a pan and saute the chilli garlic paste on medium flame
adding salt








Now add the tomato puree and ketchup which is optional. Keep stirring.








When the oil starts separating the chutney is done. Finally mix a tbsp of vinegar.

    1. Vinegar helps to preserve it too apart from adding a zing to the chutney.
