Xtra Spicy and Xtremely Easy to make Poondu Chutney/Garlic Chutney

We are almost in the end of the A-Z series in journey through Cuisine in mega marathon and today is letter X.As there is no ingredient or dish starts with X,need to use English word.So decided to make this (e)xtra spicy and extremely easy to make garlic chutney.
This chutney is often made when there is no accompaniment for the left over idlys.This chutney tastes so good with chutney and end up in eating (e)xtra few idlys.Usually this chutney is ground in a stone mortar(grinder) and it will be in a thick consistency.But with the mixie it is bit hard to get a thicker consistency.
As this is a spicy chutney it needs to be topped up with generous amount of sesame oil.Here I used little amount of tomato.But addition of tomato is purely optional.My mom used to add tomato,as it subtle the spiciness.Off to the recipe.....
