Garlic Chutney /Poondu Chutney

 Garlic chutney is a simple chutney to accompany idly,kal dosai and vendhya dosai.Its a quick fix when there is no sides accompaniments for the left over idlys.

This chutney can be made in no time and there is no cooking process involved.I have already shared a version of garlic chutney.This one is slightly different and its a semi dry version and needs to be ground bit coarser.

As it uses lot of red chilies and garlic,the chutney has to be topped with generous amount of sesame oil.The taste of the chutney even better when its is soaked in the sesame oil for at least an hour,I would say on next day.
