Kara poondu chutney recipe | Spicy Garlic chutney

Kara poondu chutney
Kara poondu chutney, is  a side dish for idli | dosa, made with few easily available ingredients. I have already posted a garlic chutney, this kara poondu chutney, is also similar to that. I was introduced to this chutney by a friend few days back, and i immediately tried it at home. It tasted very good with idli and dosa.  Check out my collection  of side dish for idli and dosa.

Notes:
  1. Since we are adding 2 tomatoes, do not reduce the quantity of red chili.
  2. The chutney will leave a pungent raw smell of garlic on your mouth for some time but for that you can take some mouth fresheners for that. The taste of the chutney will make you eat extra idli and dosa, so ignore the smell.
  3. Adding sesame oil is the most important one, so don't compromise on the quantity.
  4. If you want you can roast the garlic, red chili and tomato and grind too.
