Red chutney

Breakfasts always needs chutney. This is another simple chutney, which goes well with almost all breakfast items. There are times when I run out of Roasted gram, this version comes handy then. There are two ways to make this chutney; one using shallots and without it.

During festivals, etc the onion no garlic version comes handy. Do try this chutney version.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
