You Can’t Miss This 5-Minute Garlic Chutney

Chutney is a much-loved condiment and without it, an Indian thali remains incomplete. A little chutney can spice up the flavour of the entire meal and satisfy our souls. Just like we have dips in other cuisine, chutneys have a similar purpose but unlike dips, they are loaded with Indian spices and a lot of Indian ingredients. Not only do chutneys go well with snacks but they also complement a complete meal.  

There are several flavours of chutneys that we absolutely love. Be it coriander chutney or tomato chutney, the list is long and we can never get enough of them. Garlic chutney is another variant that holds a special place in the hearts of many people. Garlic is something that is a vital part of Indian cooking. It not only gives a great taste to a dish but also offers a great aroma. Garlic chutney is one of the main chutneys I have at home. Half a spoon of this chutney lights up the entire meal and we know how important it is. Be it snacks, rotis, or even dosa, garlic chutney is the perfect companion for everything.
