Red Garlic Chutney#SundayFunday

This Chutney is an easy side dish which goes well with idli, dosas and with dal rice, can be made with minimum ingredients and also used a multi purpose masala in gravies. This is real spicy fiery red chutney. If you are spice lover then this is for you!!

Makes One Cup

25 Grams Peeled Garlic Cloves
25 No's Dried Bedgi Chillies
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
¼ Cup + Sesame Oil

Break the chillies into small pieces, wash and soak it hot water till they soften.

Heat a tablespoon sesame oil in a pan, add the garlic and fry it stirring continuously until it becomes translucent ( do not brown/ burn it). Remove from flame and allow it to cool to room temperature. Drain the chillies completely, squeeze out the water ( if you want discard the seeds to reduce the spiciness- I used the seeds also). Now grind all the above ingredients together without adding any water. Add a teaspoon of oil at a time to to grind it to a smooth fine paste.
Remove this into a sterilized jar/bottler and pour the remaining oil on top. The chutney is ready for serving and does not require any tadka. It can be stored for a week or two in a cool place with a inch of sesame oil on top or in the refrigerator for 3 months.
My Notes
The Bedgi Chillies lends a tangy, fiery red color and offers a moderately spicy taste, unlike the Kashmiri chillies. Do try it and you can use this in gravies too, as a multi purpose masala.

  1. This looks amazing. When I first read your title, I was thinking that there was a kind of garlic - red garlic - that I needed to learn about. You know, I've used green garlic and black garlic. But now I see what it is and still can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm digging all of the different kinds of chutney being shared with us today. I can see why it is such a popular condiment.

  3. I love seeing all of these chutney recipes - so many flavor profiles and options!

  4. that's a quick, handy chutney to have in the kitchen, Sneha

  5. I love chili garlic sauce and this sounds like the perfect way to make it myself!

  6. Wow this looks like an easy peasy chutney with garlic and red chilies Sneha. Looks very tempting and it would go well with so many dishes.

  7. Red Garlic Chutney is a must have condiment in any typical Indian home. I love to have it with dhokra. Love the colour of your chutney. I usually make it with fresh red chilis. Next time will try with dried ones.
