The chilli garlic chutney is amazing. It gives an amazing color when I add it to any of my vegetables due to the addition of kashmiri chillies. i have made it and stored in my freezer and i use it whenever my recipe requires good red color. I used it for pavbhaji and the colour and flavour was amazing.
