Mosdeng Serma - Tripuri Chutney - Tiripura Special

Tiripura is one of the north eastern state,third smallest state in the country,bordered by Bangaladesh,Assam and Mizoram.
Like other NE states Tiripura cuisine is predominantly non-vegetarian and hard to find vegetarian recipes.They use lot of dried and fermented fish in their cooking.
Coming to the recipe its a chutneymade with berma(dried fish),but I skipped adding the berma and made this one.Its a regular chutney what we make in South Indian Cuisine but in a slightly different way.
The chutney came out super spicy and I accompanied with idlys.Off to the recipe.......................

you have got a good texture for the chutney despite the missing dried fish which i imagine would give a lot of body to the chutney. I liked your idea of accompanying it with idlies
