Red Chili​ chutney


Chutney is a sauce or a dry base for a sauce in Indian cuisine. It is made with few ingredients which are mixed and made into paste thick or thin.

I make this red chutney for chaat and to make curries or gravy of any vegetables. I give the add-on garlic flavor and makes food tasty. Today I cooked spinach curry in which I put this chutney during sauteing green chili. The flavored doubled. I will share the Spinach curry recipe soon.

You can make this chutney and refrigerate. It is easy an last for 15 to 20 days in the refrigerator once make.


1 cup dry red chili

1 cup dry red Kashmiri chili

1/2 cup garlic

6 to 8 tsp of lemon juice

salt to taste

6 to tsp of oil.


  • Soak dry chili in water for 2 to 3 hours in water.
  • Drain and make a paste adding rest of the ingredients.
  • Can add water, but I suggest instead add lemon juice. Not much but the proportion of the water should not be much.
  • If keeping in refrigerator keep in a glass jar, so it stays for long.

Easy Peasy right.
